MCC on National Hispanic Magazine's Publisher's Picks List
(Bradenton, Fla., Dec. 14, 2005) -- Manatee Community College (MCC) is one of 10 community colleges in the state of Florida on a nationwide 2005 Publisher's Picks list that appeared in the Nov. 21 issue of The Hispanic Outlook in Higher Education magazine. A total of 23 community colleges and universities was named in Florida.
Publisher José López-Isa said the annual list recognizes colleges and universities that are doing a commendable job of recruiting, retaining, educating and graduating Hispanics. He said academic factors, evidence of nurturing of minorities, professor/student ratio, campus safety, institutional partnerships, transition agreements and advisement capabilities are all factors considered in making the selections.
"We tip our hats to all hard-working and talented administrators, faculty, counselors, mentors, grant-writers, fundraisers and active alums at these Publisher's Picks," said López-Isa.
