MGCCC named Aspen Prize finalist for excellence in community colleges
Mississippi Gulf Coast Community College is one of 25 semi-finalists for the Aspen Prize for Community College Excellence.
The $1 million Aspen Prize is the nation’s recognition of excellence in community colleges.
The Aspen Prize, awarded every two years, honors colleges with outstanding performance in five critical areas: teaching and learning, certificate and degree completion, transfer and bachelor’s attainment, workforce success, and equitable outcomes for students of color and students from low-income backgrounds.
The top ten finalists will be announced in June and the winner will be named in 2023.
