MPCC to host community input sessions

One in Imperial coming Oct. 24 at local campus

    Mid-Plains Community College (MPCC) wants to be the first choice in the region for education, partnerships, employers and employees.
     It can’t do it alone. That’s why MPCC is planning a series of community input sessions to gather ideas from its 18-county service area that it can use to develop a 2019-22 Strategic Plan.
    One of the sessions is scheduled at the MPCC Imperial campus on Wednesday, Oct. 24, from 5:30 to 6:30 p.m.
    The public is invited to attend and share suggestions, including those for possible collaborations.
    MPCC wants to hear about the needs of its service area as well as opportunities to work hand-in-hand with schools, businesses and other organizations.
     “We know that partnerships and collaboration are key to the vibrancy of our rural economy,” said Tad Pfeifer, the college’s area director of Institutional Effectiveness.
    “MPCC can play an integral role in tying together the individuals and organizations that are seeking to make their lives and their communities better through opportunities for higher education, community and economic development. We are hoping to see new faces and hear new ideas at these meetings in our communities,” he said.
    Here is the full schedule for the five input sessions:
    Sept. 26 – 5:30-6:30 p.m. CT, MPCC Valentine Campus
    Oct. 9 - 5:30-6:30 p.m. CT, North Platte Community College North Campus, W.W. Wood Building, Room 204
    Oct. 10 - 5:30-6:30 p.m., MPCC Ogallala Campus
    Oct. 23 - 5:30-6:30 p.m. CT, McCook Community College Student Union
    Oct. 24 - 5:30-6:30 p.m. MPCC Imperial Campus
