Mo. Higher Ed Commissioner visits MCC

David Russell, commissioner of the Missouri Department of Higher Education, visited MCC last week for the first time since taking office last summer.

Commissioner David Russell and MCC leaders stop by the MCC-Longview automotive technology department as one stop on their four-campus tour of MCC.

Russell visited four of MCC's five campuses during his trip to Kansas City on Thursday. After meeting with MCC officers for briefings on a number of district-wide initiatives, the commissioner toured the MCC-Penn Valley Health Science Institute, then traveled to Longview, Business & Technology and Blue River. Time constraints prevented him from visiting MCC-Maple Woods but he received an overview of the campus during his meeting with the officers.

Russell was very complimentary of MCC throughout the day and appreciated being introduced to many of MCC's programs and initiatives, said Associate Vice Chancellor Tom Vansaghi, who hosted the commissioner's visit.
