Missouri legislators convene with MCC leaders, good will meeting

Missouri legislators meet with MCC leaders to discuss Missouri academics
Metropolitan Community College is keeping its students' needs on the minds of Missouri legislators by bringing Representatives Shannon Cooper, Brent Lasater, and Noel Torpey onto campus to discuss Missouri higher education.

Chancellor Mark James, Blue River Interim President Joe Seabrooks, and Deans Cheryl Carpenter Davis and Jon Burke shared a discussion of the issues surrounding community colleges with our state legislators over lunch.

Afterward, the group took a walking tour of the MCC-Blue River campus, peeking in on the Mac design lab, the Public Safety Institute, and the new Student Development Center.

The state representatives were actively engaged in the discussions and in this opportunity to take a closer look at higher education in our community.
