Community colleges, like Fulton-Montgomery Community College, have a complex mission. FM’s reads: “Fulton-Montgomery Community College provides accessible higher education and quality programs with a focus on student success. FM partners with the community through engagement in economic development and by providing cultural and intellectual opportunities.” The key point for this essay is the partnership with the community.
As the region’s community college, FM has hosted numerous companies, elected officials, community members and organizations on our campus for a variety of discussions; not the least of which have centered around the need for employees in our area. The Fulton – Montgomery Region is not unique in its need for workers.
