Montgomery County Community College (MCCC) is one of the Most Promising Places to Work in Community Colleges in the nation, according to a study released by Diverse: Issues in Higher Education. MCCC is one of only 11 community colleges nationwide, and the only one in Pennsylvania, named to the list.
Through a partnership with the Center for Higher Education Enterprise at Ohio State University and the National Institute for Staff and Organizational Development, Diverse examined colleges with a focus on workplace diversity, staffing practices and work environment including categories such as family friendliness, salary/benefits and professional development.
According to Dr. Kevin Pollock, MCCC president, the College is committed to building and supporting a diverse community, maintaining a campus climate that embraces differences, and ensuring equal opportunity in its educational program, activities and employment practices.
“This is a tremendous honor,” Dr. Kevin Pollock said. “The faculty and staff work hard to make Montgomery County Community College a diverse, welcoming and friendly organization where employees and students alike can develop and succeed.”
Diverse is the nation’s only news magazine dedicated exclusively to diversity issues in higher education.
In addition to MCCC, other colleges honored include Blinn College, El Centro College, Mountain View College, Oklahoma State University Institute of Technology, Pierpont Community and Technical College, Seward County Community College, South Florida State College, Southwest Virginia Community College, Stella and Charles Guttman Community College and Tallahassee Community College.
