College of the Mainland’s proximity to the Gulf Coast’s petroleum refining and petrochemical manufacturing companies not only creates demand for its real-world trained technicians, but it also attracts industry leaders who contribute expertise on college advisory boards.

 

Marathon Petroleum Corporation’s founding principle is community support.

Motivated by the quality of COM’s students entering the workforce and the prosperous local economy that comes from highly educated residents, their investment in COM is an investment in the community.
