Opportunity Nation is a national coalition of non-profit organizations, social entrepreneurs, business leaders, leading thinkers and grassroots groups dedicated to a non-partisan agenda to enhance opportunity and economic mobility in America.

It’s vision is a future where all of us have a real chance to achieve the American Dream.

DMACC is only one of four community colleges and eight universities invited to participate in Opportunity Nation. “There are many challenges facing economic prosperity,” said DMACC President Rob Denson. “However, the Iowa message is one of optimism. There are always opportunities and those who have the skills and are motivated and ready for change will succeed. We see it every day with many of our students at the College and from the employers who, even in these economic times, are having difficulty finding candidates with the right skills for the open jobs.”

President Denson said as part of the College’s responsibilities, DMACC will be hosting  Opportunity Nation events and outreach activities in 2012 to engage Central Iowans on this important initiative.
