The National Institute for Staff and Organizational Development (NISOD) and Diverse: Issues in Higher Education (Diverse) have named South Seattle College one of the 2019 Promising Places to Work in Community Colleges (PPWCC) award winners!
The annual award recognizes community and technical college commitments to diversity through best-in-class student and staff recruitment and retention practices, inclusive learning and working environments, and meaningful community service and engagement opportunities. The national study employs a web-based survey approach to obtain information from NISOD member institutions. A multipart, weighted algorithm is used to classify the responding institutions. Eighteen colleges across the nation share this year’s award with SSC.
“We are proud to honor these colleges for their sustained commitment to diversity,” said Edward J. Leach, NISOD’s Executive Director. “We are also pleased about the large number of applications this year. It shows that a growing number of colleges appreciate how critical diversity and inclusion initiatives are to their campuses and communities.”
The award-winning institutions will be recognized during NISOD’s International Conference of Teaching and Leadership Excellence, May 25-28, in Austin, Texas.
