The National Institute for Staff and Organizational Development (NISOD) and Diverse: Issues in Higher Education (Diverse) have recognized San Antonio College as one of the 2022 Most Promising Places to Work in Community Colleges.

MPPWCC 2022 badge copy.pngThe annual award recognizes community and technical colleges committed to diversity through best-in-class student and staff recruitment and retention practices, inclusive learning and working environments, and meaningful community service and engagement opportunities. The national study employs a web-based survey approach to obtain information from NISOD member institutions. A multipart, weighted algorithm is used to classify the responding institutions.

“We are honored that our efforts to make SAC an ideal place to work have been recognized,” said San Antonio College President Dr. Robert Vela. “We are committed to diversity and excellence in faculty and staff, which is key to making our students successful in their academic careers.”

“We are proud to honor these colleges for their sustained commitment to diversity,” said Edward J. Leach, NISOD’s Executive Director. “We are also pleased about the large number of applications this year. It shows that a growing number of colleges appreciate how critical diversity and inclusion initiatives are to their campuses and communities.”

The award-winning institutions will be recognized during NISOD’s International Conference of Teaching and Leadership Excellence, to be held in Austin this May. The awarded colleges will also be featured in Diverse’s newsmagazine, the only bi-weekly national publication focusing on matters of access and opportunity for all in higher education.
