    EP 33 The Most Promising Places to Work in Community Colleges

    In this episode, our host Ralph Newell sits down with co-researchers Drs. Terrell Strayhorn and Royel Johnson to discuss the Most Promising Places to Work in Community Colleges. 
    Now in its eighth year, this series of research focuses on workplace diversity, staffing practices, and work environment using a web-based survey approach to examine categories such as family friendliness, salary/benefits, and professional development opportunities.

It's when the people get in those spaces that the real magic happens. We transform those buildings into learning spaces, those learning spaces into colleges and universities.”

Diversity!!

Such a great approach on the different perspectives surrounding diversity and how it affects all communities! Enjoying each episode!

Precious Rutlin ,

Diversity is a HUGE topic right now.

This is an amazing podcast. I am glad you are stepping up and talking about a sensitive topic that is not talked about enough. Thank you for sharing this information. It effects students in higher education and the effects carry over into the workforce when the students graduate. Some students are tainted because there was not enough taught on diversity and the students perspective are skewed.

Hannah Momtana ,
