Mississippi Gulf Coast Community College has been named a 2017 Great College to Work For with an Honor Roll distinction by the Chronicle of Higher Education. MGCCC’s top-rated categories are Compensation and Benefits, Job Satisfaction, Professional/Career Development Programs, Respect and Appreciation, Supervisor/Department Chair Relationship, and Teaching Environment.
“We are proud to be a 2017 Great College to Work For because it is awarded to us based on our employee responses on the survey,” said Dr. Mary S. Graham, MGCCC president. “We believe that providing our employees opportunities to be happy, healthy and to work in a positive work environment allows us to provide the very finest education to our students, the best programs and training to our communities, and outstanding results for our business, industry, education and government partnerships.”
Through the survey conducted by ModernThink LLC and information compiled from the U.S. Department of Education, MGCCC was identified as excelling in six of 12 categories. The survey involved nearly 50,000 employees at 281 institutions, including almost 100 two-year colleges. All accredited institutions in the United States with an enrollment of at least 500 were invited to participate.
“This award speaks volumes about our institution and the great opportunities available for our employees,” Graham said. “We are proud of the quality of our workforce.”
