Ozarks Technical Community College is working to develop and revise its strategic plan to reflect education and training needs of southwest Missouri, and it wants to know what the public thinks. OTC will host a series of public listening sessions this month and next where community members are invited to provide feedback on key issues and new opportunities for growth, according to a news release.
"As the community’s college, we want to know how we can further serve our students and continue to meet the region’s workforce needs,” said OTC Chancellor Hal Higdon.
