DETROIT - The Community Foundation for Southeast Michigan announced that Dr. James (Jim) Jacobs, president of Macomb Community College, was selected for the 2013 Mariam C. Noland Award for Nonprofit Leadership.
Named after the Community Foundation's first and current president, this third annual award recognizes a nonprofit president or CEO in southeast Michigan whose service exemplifies the importance of nonprofit leadership, not only to his or her organization, but also to the wider nonprofit community.
As recipient of the Mariam C. Noland Award for Nonprofit Leadership, Macomb Community College will receive a grant of $10,000 from the Community Foundation with the preference that the funds be used for Jacobs to continue his professional education, take a personal sabbatical for career renewal or engage in philanthropic leadership activities.
"We are pleased to recognize Jim Jacobs for his visionary leadership," said Community Foundation Chair Allan D. Gilmour.
"Jim understands the power of collaboration and has successfully brought together the education and economic development communities in a strategic way to drive positive change in southeast Michigan."
Jacobs has more than 40 years experience at Macomb Community College and became president in 2008. Specializing in the areas of workforce skills and technology, economic development, worker training and community college workforce development, he has demonstrated local, regional and national leadership on the vital role that community colleges can play in supporting social, cultural and education policy.
Jacobs also sits on several local boards, including the Center for Automotive Research, Metropolitan Affairs Council and Detroit Institute of Arts.
Additionally, he is a past president of the National Council for Workforce Education, a national post-secondary organization of occupational education and workforce development specialists, and a member of the Manufacturing Extension Partnership Advisory Board of the National Institute of Standards and Technology and the National Assessment of Career and Technical Education. He also is a member of the Community College Advisory Panel to the Educational Testing Service in Princeton New Jersey.
