NACCE Leads Entrepreneurship Through Community College Programs

MUSCATINE, IOWA – AUGUST 10, 2012 – Muscatine Community College (MCC), in Muscatine, Iowa, has joined the National Association for Community College Entrepreneurship (NACCE), the nation’s leading organization focused on promoting entrepreneurship through community colleges.
