BTC Selected One of Top 120 Colleges in US
MCC-Business & Technology has been honored as one of the 120 community colleges eligible for the Aspen Prize for Community College Excellence.
An expert panel has identified BTC as eligible to apply for the $1 million prize based on institutional performance, improvement, and equity on student retention and completion measures.
Business & Technology is the only MCC campus to be selected, and one of five Missouri colleges – joining Linn State, Crowder, North Central and Missouri State University-West Plains.
Applying for the next round will require documenting how we use data to continually improve student success, program offerings and our responsiveness to workforce needs. The Aspen Institute hopes that “by focusing on student success and lifting up models that work, the Aspen Prize will honor excellence, stimulate innovation, and create benchmarks for measuring progress.”
The $1 million will be awarded in December 2011.
