Each year, Diverse: Issues in Higher Education spotlights the “Most Promising Places to Work in Community Colleges.” The group announced their list for 2020, and two ACBSP-accredited members are among the 15 schools selected—Greenville Technical College (South Caroline) and Harrisburg Area Community College (Pennsylvania).
According to diverseeducation.com, “This study was first commissioned by the National Institute for Staff and Organizational Development (NISOD) and Diverse: Issues In Higher Education in 2014. The purpose of this commissioned study was to examine the extent to which diversity and inclusion permeates various aspects (e.g., administrative structures, commitments, work environments, staffing practices) of the work places at participating two-year community and technical colleges, all of which are NISOD-member institutions.”
“The Most Promising Places to Work in Student Affairs project is in partnership with the American College Personnel Association (ACPA); findings were published in the March 5, 2020 edition of Diverse. The Most Promising Places to Work in Community Colleges project is in partnership with NISOD.”
“This year’s list of the Most Promising Places to Work in Community Colleges includes an impressive cast of 2-year institutions that specialize in equipping students for securing the bright promises of their future. Each of them has signature programs and marquee initiatives that make them uniquely who they are. Promising Places is a national recognition that celebrates student affairs workplaces that are vibrant, diverse, supportive and committed to staff work-life balance, professional development, and inclusive excellence.”
The business programs at Harrisburg Area Community College have been accredited by ACBSP since 1991. Greenville Technical College has maintained ACBSP accreditation of their business programs since 1994.
