“It is an honor and privilege to serve my peers, staff, and community on this committee,” stated President Ward. “The work of the MCCA and its centers for excellence (Center for Student Success, Michigan Colleges Online, and the Michigan New Jobs Training Programs) is vital for stronger community colleges and services to our students and communities.”
