Kathy Ulibarri and Tyler Dillman were awarded the Presidential Medal of Excellence by Dr. Gregg Busch for their contributions to educational development at our Mesalands Convocation. Our faculty and staff convocation is a gathering before the start of each semester focused on rededication of the college’s academic mission. We focus on student success, access, and the prudent use of resources. As part of our commitment to continual improvement in these areas, we joined the Collaborative for Higher Education Shared Services (CHESS), and EAB.
