National Higher Ed Publication Notes MCC’s Work in Educating Adult Students

Dr. Todd Oldham, vice president of economic and workforce development, was invited to participate in a panel discussion, “The Best (and Worst) Colleges for Adults,” held Sept. 14 in Washington, D.C.

The discussion focused on how some colleges, including MCC, are innovative leaders in adult education and are transforming higher education to be responsive to learners of all ages.

Community College Daily shared highlights of the discussion in an article,  titled “Colleges need to better serve adult students“, noting the work of Dr. Oldham and his team in producing accelerated programs and using labor market intelligence to better serve employers’ needs and develop the local workforce.

MCC was recently named one of 12 most innovative U.S. colleges for adult learners by the Washington Monthly magazine.
