Leaders of Maryland's 16 community colleges pledged Friday to increase the number of degrees they award by nearly two-thirds by 2025, part of a state and national movement to raise the college completion rate.

The "Promise to Act," signed by the presidents of all 16 colleges and announced at a noon news conference, is a response to the White House Summit on Community Colleges this fall.

The Obama administration wants two-year colleges to generate 5 million additional degrees and certificates in 10 years toward a national goal of regaining the world lead in college completion.

Maryland has set a separate goal that 55 percent of adults hold college degrees by 2025. Meeting it would require more than 20,000 additional degrees.
