What I love most about working at COCM is not only do we talk about putting students first, but we mean it.  Our work environment, decisions, and entire philosophy centers around doing the right thing.

Assistant Director of Housing, University Park Apartments

I have had the privilege of working for COCM at two different sites, and have enjoyed each experience immensely. Each site has distinct operating modes and the collaborative nature between sites offers the opportunity to call upon expertise and resources amongst colleagues in both a virtual and physical community. In my current position, I have asked for guidance from my previous co-workers and others within the company whom I have not yet met in person. Everyone within the COCM community is always willing to assist and I value the camaraderie in helping others be successful!
