Colleagues and MCC supporters,mark_james_2011

I am pleased to share with you MCC’s 2012 Annual Report, hot off the press.

I’m proud of the continued success of our students and employees whose stories are told in this report. You’ll also read about the advancement of a number of programs and initiatives throughout 2012. A few highlights include:

  • A visit from U.S. Secretary of Health & Human Services Kathleen Sebelius to the MCC-Penn Valley Health Science Institute to discuss the growing demand for a skilled health IT workforce
  • Opening of six Public Computer Centers to provide free computer access and training for the communities surrounding MCC’s campuses
  • A $3.2 million grant award from the U.S. Dept. of Labor to develop the MoHealthWINs healthcare career training program alongside other community colleges across Missouri
  • A visit from Dr. Jill Biden and the Dept. of Labor’s Jane Oates to highlight the innovative workforce partnership that comprises the MoHealthWINs program
  • Establishment of a satellite MCC location in Cass County to increase college access for residents in that area
