Show Notes

On the latest episode of the Conduit Street Podcast, Brad Phillips joins Kevin Kinnally and Drew Jabin to discuss the history and mission of Maryland's community colleges, their commitment to access and equity, and why -- as the state works to recover from the COVID-19 pandemic -- they may be more important now than ever.

Brad Phillips is the Deputy Executive Director at the Maryland Association of Community Colleges (MACC). MACC serves as the advocate and unified voice for the state’s 16 community colleges, as well as the educational needs of the students they serve.

Working with elected officials, policy-makers, business groups, local, state, and federal government representatives, and stakeholder organizations, MACC aims to make post-secondary education accessible to all Marylanders, grow the percentage of Marylanders who are college and career-ready, increase community college completion rates statewide, and develop recognition of the community college contribution to economic development and resiliency.
