The Mississippi Community College Board (MCCB) was recently recognized as a Champion of Learning by the Association for Talent Development (ATD). This accolade was awarded to the agency for its promotion of the value and importance of workplace learning and participation during ATD’s Employee Learning Week (ELW) activities during the week of December 7-11, 2020.

During ELW 2020, the MCCB’s Division of Human Resources and Division of eLearning and Instructional Technology highlighted the many online training sessions available to staff, hosted two online training events, and introduced two new internally produced training videos to support the work functions of its staff through an email announcing ELW and daily social media posts. The MCCB also announced the selected participants of its new, intensive internal training program called ExCEL, which stands for Expanding Capacity for Effectiveness & Leadership.
