Tallahassee Community College has recently received a national award for our commitment to diversity.
TCC has been named one of the Most Promising Places to Work in Community Colleges by the National Institute for Staff and Organizational Development and Diverse: Issues in Higher Education magazine. This research-based designation recognizes commitment to professional development opportunities, equality, workplace diversity, inclusion, salary and benefits, and family friendliness.
Only 11 community colleges in the nation received this prestigious award, which celebrates community college workplaces that are vibrant, diverse, supportive, and committed to staff work-life balance, professional development and inclusive excellence. In his congratulatory announcement, Edward Leach, executive director of NISOD, referred to TCC as a “beacon for diversity.” He said the award recognizes TCC’s best-in-class recruitment and retention practices, inclusive learning and working environment, and meaningful community service and engagement opportunities.
Notably, TCC was also named a Most Promising Place to Work in Community Colleges in 2015. The College is one of only seven community colleges nationwide to be recognized multiple times on the annual list.
This is a great honor for the College and reflects on all our faculty and staff members. I am incredibly fortunate to work with such a caring and committed team of professionals, and I thank you for your efforts every day to make TCC a great institution and a great place to work.
