About the Metropolitan Education Commission

The Metropolitan Education Commission (MEC), composed of 34 Citizen Commissioners, advises, makes recommendations and serves as an advocate in all areas as they affect the educational welfare of Tucson and Pima County. MEC’s goals include:

  • To empower and advocate for students, their teachers, and their families
  • To acknowledge individuals and groups within the community whose exemplary service to students and to education merits such special recognition
  • To promote graduation from high school as a first step toward an enriched future for students and a realistic sense of their place within the community.
