Montgomery County Community College has been named a 2019 Leader College of Distinction by Achieving the Dream, the nonprofit leader in championing evidence-based institutional improvement, becoming one of only 11 colleges in the country to receive this prestigious designation.
MCCC has been recognized for its work in achieving higher student outcomes and narrowing equity gaps.
“This award recognizes that Montgomery County Community College is a leader in its work to champion success for all students through the intentional design of the college experience,” said Dr. Victoria Bastecki-Perez, MCCC Interim President and Provost. “I’m proud of the dedication of our faculty, administrators and staff who diligently work to develop innovative solutions to help all students achieve their academic and career goals.”
The college was previously recognized by ATD as a Leader College in 2011, a designation that was reaffirmed in 2017.
In 2014, the college was also honored with ATD’s prestigious Leah Meyer Austin Award for building whole-college solutions and equity that resulted in significant increases in student success.
ATD created the Leader College of Distinction award two years ago to recognize colleges that continuously strive to meet challenging student success goals.
