ECMC Focused on Student Success at PERSIST Workshop on Campus


Press Release

Employees gathered in the Great Room of building A gaining access to tools for student success provided by ECMC. Presenters Brenda McCafferty and Tom Bailey lead faculty and staff through activities on student schedules, graduation rates, outreach, and financial education.

ECMC has provided Mesalands Community College, as a Hispanic Serving Institution, with the ability to determine a student’s proclivity to a certain career field. Students are able to test on interests to narrow their field of interest. Upon graduation students will also be able to find job openings, and complete financial education to provide resources for paying back financial loans successfully. They also provided emergency funding opportunities and financing a food pantry for students in need.

Faculty and staff spent time sharing in ideas to ensure student success from diverse backgrounds and situations. Mesalands Community College has made student success and access a priority while using resources, such that ECMC provides, efficiently. This workshop was a great opportunity to share ideas and tools for the benefit of the students at Mesalands Community College.
