 Serving Students While Staying True to the Mission 


Michael Kearns is making an odd pitch to California community college students: Cross the Arizona border, get into a class.

“There’s no sense in having California students sitting on the sideline just because they can’t get into a class,” says Kearns, president of Mohave Community College (MCC) in Kingman, Ariz., on the border with California. “So we say, ‘If you want to come here, that’s great. Even if it’s just for one semester or one year until you can get a place at your local school, at least you won’t be wasting time.’”
