December 2015 & January 2016

Transform the student experience.

  • Seventy seven students were recognized for academic honors for the 2015 fall semester. Fifty seven maintained a 4.0 GPA.
  •  MCC has consolidated course offerings into a block schedule on the Fort Morgan campus to optimize matriculation through degree programs.
  • MCC will be conducting student engagement surveys for CSSE to be used as a national benchmark for accreditation purposes as well as internal assessments on student support
  • Five MCC concurrent enrollment students from Liberty High School (a very small rural high school in eastern Colorado) will be competing with students from Fairview High School (Boulder) in a PBS broadcast on February 21 (6:30 p.m.) in a program called Match Wits.

Transform our own workforce experience.

  • Barbara Eakley-Troudt was selected as MCC’s Faculty Member of the Year; Dave Litteral was named MCC’s Adjunct Faculty of the Year.
  • In late November, MCC’s Director of Institutional Effectiveness implemented a “Tally Dashboard” for all administrators. The dashboard provides a summary enrollment comparison to prior years and allows drill-downs to a specific campus or department to see the current “Tally Report.” It can quickly identify low enrollment courses as well as manage faculty teaching loads.
  • Western Wyoming Community College has requested a visit to MCC to make inquiry and investigate why MCC has been an honor roll designee in the Great Colleges to Work For recognition for five consecutive years.

Create education without barriers through transformational partnerships.

  • The Center for Arts and Community Enrichment (CACE) hosted concerts by the MCC Morgan County Chorale and the MCC Platte Valley Band.
  • CACE is opening an art exhibit on January 29. The exhibit is titled “Modern Icons,” and will feature artist Sara Braswell.

Redefine our value proposition through accessibility, affordability, quality, accountability, resource development, and operational excellence.

  • MCC’s Financial Aid Office is hosting a series of financial aid nights at service area high schools.
  • The MCC Burlington Center received a $5,000 donation from Bill and Billie Hinkhouse and families.
  • FMS Bank of Fort Morgan donated $10,000 to the Morgan Community College Foundation to support MCC’s Business Partnership Program to further the recruitment of new students and support the economic development of northeastern Colorado.
  • MCC’s Educational Opportunity Council (EOC) has partnered with CSU to conduct meetings with non-English speaking minority parents of high school students.  CSU has found that academically capable minority students have a cultural and financial obstacle in matriculating from high school to a large university.  The purpose of joint parent meetings is to provide parents with an understanding of how MCC can become a logical stepping stone for a college or university degree.
  • The MCC Foundation and grant office is working on three different College Opportunity Scholarship Incentive (COSI) funding streams to provide greater access to MCC for prospective students.  All three COSI initiatives require partnerships with various governmental agencies.
