SPC named 2022 Most Promising Places to Work in Community Colleges
June 1, 2022
The National Institute for Staff and Organizational Development (NISOD) and Diverse: Issues In Higher Education (Diverse) have recognized St. Philip’s College as one of the 2022 Most Promising Places to Work in Community Colleges. This is the second time the college wins the award.
The 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.
“Collectively, we come to work with an attitude of being a ‘difference maker’ in the lives of our students,” said St. Philip’s College President Dr. Adena Williams Loston. “These past 18 months gave us an opportunity to demonstrate how much we valued our workforce and their resiliency. This demonstration of caring for our employees caused us to launch our ‘We Care’ campaign. I believe this has contributed greatly to garnering us this recognition.”
Award recipients receive a specially-designed logo to promote the institution’s commitment to diversity during student and staff recruitment efforts, as well as during other times when they want to highlight their commitment to inclusiveness. The awarded colleges are also featured in Diverse’s news magazine, the only bi-weekly national publication focusing on matters of access and opportunity for all in higher education.
