NISOD and Diverse: Issues in Higher Education are proud to announce the 5th annual Promising Places to Work in Community Colleges (PPWCC) award. The PPWCC recognizes community and technical college exceptional commitments to diversity (including race/ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation, disability, age, class, veterans, and thought) through best-in-class student and staff recruitment and retention practices, inclusive learning and working environments, and meaningful community service and engagement opportunities.
This prestigious recognition can be used by recipients to promote their commitment to providing campuses where all individuals and groups feel welcomed, respected, and valued. The most committed NISOD member colleges are recognized as Promising Places to Work in Community Colleges Award Recipients, profiled in Diverse: Issues in Higher Education, and receive “Promising Places to Work in Community Colleges” awards during NISOD’s International Conference on Teaching and Leadership Excellence. Promising Places to Work in Community Colleges Award Recipients are also provided with a specially-designed logo that can be used to promote the institution’s commitment to diversity during student and staff recruitment efforts, as well as during other times when recipients want to highlight their commitment to diversity.
This international survey is administered by Do Good Work Educational Consulting.
