For the fifth consecutive year, Montgomery County Community College has been named one of the ‘Most Promising Places to Work in Community Colleges’ in the nation.
This award recognizes community and technical colleges that foster diverse, inclusive, and supportive workplaces and learning environments. It is presented by “Diverse: Issues In Higher Education” and the National Institute for Staff and Organizational Development.
MCCC is one of only three community/technical colleges in Pennsylvania to receive this award and one of only 15 nationwide.
“It is a great honor for the College to receive this prestigious recognition for five years in a row,” said Dr. Victoria L. Bastecki-Perez, MCCC Interim President and Provost. “This award is the result of the continued collective efforts of our faculty, staff, and administrators, who work tirelessly every day to promote diversity and equity and foster a sense of belonging for everyone on our campuses.”
Among the numerous programs that MCCC was recognized for are its annual Presidential Symposium on Diversity, Social Justice Series, and Lively Arts Series performances and art exhibitions. There are also activities throughout Global Diversity Awareness Month that includes a pride flag-raising ceremony on National Diversity Day.
