But a promise was walked a Giants { 2015 Great By Kathy McAdams Mississippi Gulf Coast Community College was the only community col- lege in Mississippi to be named to the 2Ol5 Great Colleges to Work For list by the Chronicle of Higher Education. Of the 86 colleges and uni- versities listed from across the nation, only three were from Mississippi. "As part of our com- mitment to both employees and students, MGCCC strives to create an institutional culture that promotes healthy lifestyles and encour- ages communication among all college employees," said Dr. Mary S. Graham, MGCCC president. "This past year, the college made it a priority to provide on-campus clin- ics for employees and their dependents because we recognized that finding affordable and accessible health care can often be chal- lenging. The college has also found that fostering open lines of interactive communication leads to empowered employees who embrace our com- mitment to make a posi- tive difference in the lives of our students, communities and state. We are grateful for our outstanding employees, and we are dedicated to continue making MGCCC a great place to work and learn." The institutions named on the 2o15 Great Colleges to Work For roster are selected based on the results of a sur- vey of nearly 44,ooo college and university employees by Modern Think. The survey rates institutions on 12 categories in the fields of leadership, careers, the workplace and com- pensation. MGCCC's top-rated categories included facilities, work- place and security; pro- fessional/career-devel- opment programs; supervisor or depart- ment chair relation- ships; and work/life bal- ance.
