Commonwealth Commitment College Affordability Program Expanded 9/20/20179/20/2017 2:58 PM
Massachusetts college students enrolled in the Commonwealth Commitment program will now be able to choose from more than 40 majors, up from the initial six offered last year, to qualify for the discounts and rebates aimed at making a bachelor’s degree more affordable.

With the program’s expansion, greater numbers of students will be able to save an average 40 percent off the cost of a traditional bachelor’s degree by starting their course of study at one of the state’s 15 community colleges – including Middlesex Community College – and then transferring to a state university or University of Massachusetts campus.

Students will have significantly more options to choose from in the “MassTransfer A2B” – Associates to Bachelor’s – degree-mapped programs which guarantee that course credits transfer between community colleges and the state’s public four-year universities.

Students who sign up for the Commonwealth Commitment can choose from a wide range of majors that collectively represent 75 percent of the majors chosen by current public college and university students. The programs include computer science, business, criminal justice, architectural, industrial and graphic design, communications and early education, as well as liberal arts and sciences.

“This program is designed to make college more affordable for students and make it easier to earn a college degree in the Commonwealth,” said Gov. Charlie Baker. “By expanding the number of majors available through the Commonwealth Commitment program, our administration believes more students will be encouraged to pursue an affordable degree and transition into strong career opportunities right here in Massachusetts.”

“The Commonwealth Commitment program is designed to reduce cost and increase completion and graduation rates for students moving from the community colleges to state universities and UMass campuses,” said Lt. Gov. Karyn Polito. “By opening this program to more majors, we expect more students to take advantage of this college affordability program, so they can go to school full-time and complete on-time.”

All majors offered by the Massachusetts College of Art and Design, as well as six specialty programs offered by the Massachusetts Maritime Academy will also now be eligible for Commonwealth Commitment discounts.

“We know that students who do not go to college full-time, largely because they cannot afford to, are less likely than their peers to complete their degrees,” Education Secretary James Peyser said. “The Commonwealth Commitment is a new pathway we developed to make college completion a reality for more students by making it more affordable.”

“What began as a small pilot program is now poised to expand dramatically to serve more students in the 2017-18 academic year,” said Carlos E. Santiago, Massachusetts Commissioner of Higher Education. “While many states have begun experimenting with ways to reduce college costs, the Commonwealth Commitment is unique in creating incentives for students to earn two degrees in four years. We're hoping that students who may not have thought they could afford a bachelor's degree will be convinced to continue on with their education.”

In the spring of 2016, the Baker-Polito Administration launched the Commonwealth Commitment to provide Massachusetts students with discounts on tuition through transfer. Students first earn an associate degree at one of the state’s 15 community colleges and then complete bachelor’s degree at any public four-year institution. Once enrolled, students’ tuition and mandatory fees are frozen; they also receive rebates up to 10 percent at the end of each semester and a tuition waiver or credit during their junior and senior years. Students are required to go to school full-time and maintain a 3.0 grade point ("B") average. Students can realize savings of 40 percent or more off the typical sticker price for a four-year degree, depending on the colleges they chose to attend, before other state and federal financial aid is factored in.

Students who enrolled in the Commonwealth Commitment program last year reported using their rebates to buy textbooks, pay the interest on student loans or receive credits toward next semester’s bill.

“I fully support the efforts to expand the Commonwealth Commitment's programs of study and majors. This move will strengthen the program by increasing affordability and accessibility to higher education, which are keys to building a well-educated 21st-century workforce,” said James C. Mabry, President of Middlesex Community College.

“This is exciting news from the Baker administration and will go a long way toward meeting the noble goal we all have of keeping college affordable for our students,” said James J. Campbell, Chairman of the MCC Board of Trustees. “At Middlesex, we strive to keep an education both affordable and accessible to our students and communities, and I am proud to see the college play a pivotal role in helping chart a pathway to success through the Commonwealth Commitment.”

Liberty Mutual Insurance Company, one of the largest Fortune 500 companies based in Boston, recently launched a Commonwealth Commitment scholarship program for students worth $2,500 a year for four years. The first winners of the scholarship will be announced this fall.

MCC Hosts Artist Cathy McLaurin at MILES Fall Opening Session9/13/20179/20/2017 2:21 PM

Middlesex CC Receives Funding for State-of-the-Art Biotech Facility in Lowell 9/11/20179/20/2017 2:21 PM
Middlesex Community College has received funding through a recent $3 million capital grant from the Massachusetts Life Sciences Center (MLSC) to build a state-of-the-art biotechnology facility on the Lowell campus.

MCC’s Biotechnology Program is highly respected and holds a Platinum endorsement – the highest rating – from the Massachusetts Life Science Education Consortium. The first community-college biotech program in the state, it was established in 1990.

Middlesex President James C. Mabry said the new facility will enable the college to further enhance and support its pioneering Biotechnology Technician degree and certificate programs. “Biotech is an economic engine in our region and we welcome opportunities to better further align our programs of study with industry standards,” said Mabry.

Dr. Mariluci Bladon founded and still coordinates the program, and has nurtured its growth. At first, the program enrolled just 25 students; it now boasts almost 200. “Enrollment in MCC’s Biotechnology programs has doubled since 2005,” added Kathleen Sweeney, MCC Dean of Science, Technology, Engineering & Math (STEM).

Under Bladon’s guidance, most of her Biotech students complete a certificate, are placed in paid internships, complete an associate degree, and transfer to earn a bachelor’s degrees.

Alum Robert Kenyon (Class of 1995), Biogen’s Vice President of North American Manufacturing Operations, followed this pathway and has enjoyed a successful 23-year biotech career. He recently returned to campus to address the Class of 2017 as Commencement Speaker and was presented the 2017 Distinguished Alumni Award.

Kenyon earned a Biotechnology Technician Certificate in 1995 and an associate degree in 1997. In 2000, he earned a bachelor’s degree in biotechnology from Boston University. During his commencement address, Kenyon praised Professor Bladon for her devotion to the program and her students.

“I would especially like to thank Dr. Mariluci Bladon for her awe-inspiring leadership and dedication to the Biotechnology Program for so many years,” said Kenyon. “Without her passion and commitment, I know very clearly that I would not be standing here today. …She is truly an amazing educator with a passion that few bring to their profession.”

Kenyon enrolled at MCC as part of a federal program for dislocated defense workers. At the conclusion of the six-month program, he was placed in an internship on the manufacturing floor at Biogen. Eleven months later, he was hired full time, working the overnight shift.

There were 30 people working in manufacturing at that time. Today, Kenyon supervises Biogen’s manufacturing facilities and general operations sites in Research Triangle Park, N.C., home to approximately 1,300 employees.

“Middlesex really set me up well,” said Kenyon. “I was in school learning concepts about the business in the classrooms and in the labs, and then going to work at night and seeing it all in practice. I really took to manufacturing – the intersection of biology and engineering.”

MCC’s new biotechnology facility, to be located on the fifth floor of the Talbot Science Building on the Lowell campus, will include a combined lecture room/laboratory, a Class 10,000 clean room, gowning area, and prep room. These and other upgrades will significantly expand the college’s capacity to prepare students to meet the workforce needs of the life-sciences industry.

Middlesex CC Foundation Names Hitchcock to Board 9/5/20179/20/2017 2:19 PM
The Middlesex Community College Foundation has named Christopher B. Hitchcock, of Belmont, to its Board of Directors.

“I am pleased to welcome Christopher Hitchcock to the Middlesex Community Foundation Board of Directors. I am positive he will serve the foundation well and provide the college with important connections and insights into our communities,” said MCC President James C. Mabry. “Chris will be a tremendous asset to the college as we seek the resources necessary to fulfill our mission of providing students with a high quality, affordable education.”

Hitchcock retired after a 30-year career in the U.S. Air Force, 10 years on active duty and 20 more in the reserves. He served as Reserve Assistant to the Wing Commander, 66th Air Base Wing, Hanscom Air Force Base, in his last position. After his departure from active duty in 1979, he held a variety of business management positions in the private sector, including for The Cadmus Group Inc. of Waltham, and Bolt Beranek & Newman Inc. of Cambridge.

“Having lived in Middlesex County for more than 40 years, I’m well aware of the important contributions Middlesex has made to higher education in the commonwealth,” said Hitchcock. “I’ve seen its impact steadily increase as the college expanded its reach and offerings, due in very large measure to the creativity of the college leadership, as well as that of the MCC Foundation. I am honored to be asked to work with these dedicated leaders to help move the college to the next level of excellence and success.”

A Certified Professional Contract Manager, Hitchcock has been a long-time member, and served on the board, of the Boston Chapter of the National Contract Management Association. Among many other professional associations, he has been a member of the Society of Logistics Engineers, Society of Cost Estimating & Analysis, and has been very active in the Armed Forces Communications & Electronics Association (Lexington-Concord chapter), and the Order of Daedalians.

Foundation Chairman James Henderson said he was proud and excited to welcome Hitchcock to the board. “Chris brings a wealth of financial and general management experience to the board, and I know he will provide invaluable support and insight to not just our foundation board, but to the students of Middlesex Community College and the college community at large,” said Henderson. “We are very eager to welcome Chris’ contributions in these areas as our foundation continues to grow.”

The MCC Foundation was created in 1988 to enlist private-sector support to further the educational and charitable purposes of Middlesex Community College. For more information about the MCC Foundation, visit: https://www.middlesex.mass.edu/foundation.

Learn more about Middlesex Community College’s nationally recognized Transition Program, a two-year, noncredit vocational certificate program for students with learning/cognitive disabilities. A Transition Program Information Session will be held from 9 to 11 a.m. Thursday, Oct. 5, in MCC’s Bedford Campus Center’s Café East, 591 Springs Road.

“MCC’s Transition program is designed for students with significant learning disabilities who would find traditional college-level academics too challenging, even with extensive support services,” said Patricia Bruno, MCC’s Associate Dean of Student Support Services. “The Transition Program helps students achieve their potential through coursework and hands-on experience in work settings.”

Three days a week, Transition Program students attend classes designed to teach independent-living skills, computer and job-survival skills, and social skills.

Two days a week, students work as interns in competitive employment situations in office and business support environments. Transition students may participate in all Middlesex student activities and student support services.

Graduates of MCC’s Transition Program receive a Certificate of Completion in Office and Business Support Skills and typically obtain employment in office support, business support, or retail support.

Transition Program candidates should have a high school diploma or GED credential, interest in training for entry-level work in business and industry, fifth- to eighth-grade level reading and math skills, and the maturity and emotional stability to effectively participate in a program on a college campus.

Information session participants will receive an overview of the program, as well as in-depth information on the curriculum, application procedures, details of the required internship portion of the program, and prospective job opportunities.

MCC and Lowell Spinners Establish New Scholarship and Internship Opportunity for Students8/16/20179/13/2017 11:26 AM
Middlesex Community College and the Lowell Spinners baseball club have established a new scholarship and internship opportunity to support MCC students.

The Lowell Spinners Annual Scholarship is part of the Spinners Scholars program, made possible by team owner Dave Heller and the Lowell Spinners. This annual scholarship was established to benefit students from the Merrimack Valley who exhibit a high level of integrity, academic excellence, an interest in sports, a demonstrated desire to improve their community, and a willingness to commit to making one’s future in the Merrimack Valley. The recipient will also participate in a paid summer internship with the Spinners organization.

Funding for the Lowell Spinners Annual Scholarship is provided by an annual contribution from the Spinners, which together with other applicable grants, ensures that neither the recipient nor his or her family will have any financial obligation for tuition and fees for his or her second year. The scholarship also includes a paid summer internship with the Spinners.

“Giving back to this wonderful community is of great importance to everyone at the Spinners, and one of the best ways to do that is to help our young people build a better future for themselves and their families, and that's what the great team at Middlesex Community College does every day,” said Spinners owner Dave Heller. “This scholarship incentivizes people to achieve excellence, helps them climb the ladder of opportunity to a better future, gives them first-hand experience in the world of sports, and makes our community a better place. That's a grand slam!”

“Having wonderful community partners like the Spinners is a tremendous asset for Middlesex Community College and the entire Merrimack Valley,” said MCC president James Mabry. “Dave Heller and the entire Spinners organization are committed to making a positive difference in our communities and their support for students and student success is greatly appreciated.”

The Spinners Scholarship is open to second-year MCC students who are U.S. citizens and residents of the Merrimack Valley. For more information about this and other scholarship opportunities available, visit https://www.middlesex.mass.edu/foundation/scholarships/

MCC Named to 2017 Class of Excellence in Assessment Designees8/23/20179/5/2017 10:44 AM
First National Designation of Its Kind Recognizes Institutions at the Leading Edge of Integrated Student Learning Outcomes Assessment


Middlesex Community College has been named one of just five members of the 2017 class of Excellence in Assessment designees, a national program aimed at recognizing colleges and universities conducting a comprehensive assessment of student learning outcomes as a means to drive internal improvement and advance student success.

The Excellence in Assessment (EIA) program – the first national designation of its kind – spotlights institutions successfully integrating assessment practices across campus, providing evidence of student learning outcomes, and using assessment results to guide institutional decision-making and improve student performance.

Sponsors of the EIA program are the Voluntary System of Accountability (VSA), a public-college and university transparency initiative led by the Association of Public and Land-grant Universities (APLU), and the American Association of State Colleges and Universities (AASCU), in partnership with the Association of American Colleges & Universities (AAC&U) and the National Institute for Learning Outcomes Assessment (NILOA).

"We are very honored to be selected for this NILOA Excellence in Assessment designation,” said MCC’s Philip J. Sisson, Provost and Vice President of Academic & Student Affairs.

“This designation is clear confirmation of the exceptional assessment work of the faculty and staff under the leadership of recently retired Dean of Assessment Elise Martin. Our collegewide commitment to the ongoing use of assessment findings to improve the student learning experience at Middlesex Community College continues to be a source of pride and national recognition."

Here are details about MCC’s assessment work:
Middlesex Community College’s culture of assessment includes a well–scaffolded assessment infrastructure of shared expectations and alignment of student learning at its institutional, program, and course levels. Campus-wide commitment to assessment is found in MCC’s shared governance structure in developing and assessing its six institutional learning outcomes. Documenting the impact of curricular changes, intentional engagement of faculty, key stakeholders, and students throughout its assessment process, integrating co-curricular learning, and availability of campus assessment resources provide evidence of MCC’s commitment to excellence in assessment.

In addition to Middlesex, four other schools also made the 2017 EIA Designations: Bowling Green State University (Ohio), James Madison University (Virginia), Rio Salado College (Arizona) and Southern Connecticut State University.

The EIA designation was created to acknowledge on a national level the important work colleges and universities are doing through comprehensive assessment activities, and to highlight those practices so other institutions can draw upon them for their own efforts. As part of the application process, colleges and universities were asked not just to detail the specific assessment activities they’ve undertaken, but also the reason why such efforts are a priority for them. The designees needed to demonstrate how aligned processes, building from classroom-based assessment, foster a coherent, collaborative approach to assessing student learning.

The EIA Designations are directly linked to NILOA’s Transparency Framework, and are the first national program designed to recognize institutions engaging in intentional campus-wide assessment. The evaluation process for the designation included a rigorous and systematic self-study and peer review by faculty members and staff who are assessment experts, and include feedback that enables campuses to improve their effectiveness and sharing of best practices. Accredited, degree-granting institutions working to implement and sustain comprehensive use of assessment of student learning outcomes are eligible to receive the designations. For more information, visit the EIA Designation web page.

Works by MCC Art Professor Added to Smithsonian Collections 7/17/20177/25/2017 2:15 PM
Two artworks by ceramist Yary Livan, Adjunct Professor of Art at Middlesex Community College, have been added to the permanent collections of the Smithsonian Institution’s Sackler/Freer Gallery in Washington, D.C.

Smithsonian Curator of Ceramics Louise Cort visited the Lowell artist’s studio and selected an elephant pot and a vase to be included in the Asian art galleries’ permanent collections. Both pieces were fired in MCC’s Cambodian wood-fired kiln.

Livan’s works were also featured in “The Glazed Elephant: Ceramic Traditions in Cambodia,” a recent exhibition at the Sackler Gallery exploring the ceramic tradition of the Angkor kingdom (802-1431). To celebrate his accomplishments, Livan participated in a series of public programs, including an artist talk, and ceramic workshops for adults and children at the District Clay Center, a new ceramics facility in Washington, D.C.

In 2015, Livan was awarded a National Endowment for the Arts National Heritage Fellowship, the nation’s highest honor in the folk and traditional arts. He received a 2012 Massachusetts Cultural Council Artist Fellowship.

Trained at the Royal University of Fine Arts in Phnom Penh, Livan now lives in Lowell and joined the Middlesex faculty in 2012. He is believed to be one of the few ceramists to survive Cambodia’s brutal Pol Pot-era genocide and the only known to be living in the U.S. Livan helped build a smokeless, wood-fired kiln in Lowell National Historical Park, which he uses to share traditional Cambodian techniques as part of MCC ceramics courses and the national park’s public programs.

The Commonwealth Commitment is an innovative statewide college affordability and completion plan designed to help more students achieve the dream of a college degree. Participating MCC students must enroll in the Commonwealth Commitment before they earn 15 course credits; attend full-time; and maintain a cumulative GPA of 3.0.

Students will begin their studies at one of the state's 15 community colleges, enrolling in one of 24 Commonwealth Commitment/MassTransfer Pathways major programs of study.

The Commonwealth Commitment commits every public-college campus to providing 10 percent rebates at the end of each successfully completed semester to qualifying undergraduate students. This is in addition to the standard MassTransfer Tuition Credit received upon entering a four-year institution from a community college.

There also will be a freeze on all tuition and mandatory fees upon program entry, which is valid until students successfully complete or leave the Commonwealth Commitment program.

Students at Middlesex can choose from a number of pathways, including Biology, Chemistry, Economics, History, Political Science, Psychology, Business, Communications, Computer Science, Criminal Justice, Early Childhood Education, English, Liberal Arts, Mathematics, and Life and Physical Science.

MCC Wins MRT’s First Donahue Award for Community Leadership 7/5/20177/17/2017 9:22 AM
Middlesex Community College has been recognized as an “extraordinary” community partner by Lowell’s Merrimack Repertory Theatre (MRT).

At MRT’s 2017 Set the Stage Celebration – which raised more than $100,000 for the theater’s education programs – Middlesex was presented the newly created Donahue Award for Community Leadership. The award is named in honor of MRT founder Nancy L. Donahue.

Accepting the award for the college were President James C. Mabry and Karen Oster, Chairwoman of Performing Arts. “We are very proud and honored to receive this award,” said Mabry. “At Middlesex, we are dedicated to promoting student success on – and off – the stage!”

“Our mission has always included the active participation of our students in learning to engage and empower others in the community through theater,” added Oster. “Over the last two years, we have partnered with MRT so our students can be more actively involved in the creative process of work-shopping new plays and musicals.”

MCC’s Theater Department has helped MRT workshop three new works: “Chill,” “Little Women Retold” and “Hurricane, The Musical,” Oster explained. “These workshops have enabled Middlesex students to take part in observing, working behind the scenes, and in the case of ‘Hurricane,’ appearing on stage.”

Two Career Centers Help People Enter and Re-enter the Workforce 6/6/20177/12/2017 8:33 AM
Lori Renn Parker had devoted 20 years of her life to being a stay-at-home mom and community volunteer.

With both her children out of the house, Parker, 58, was energized and looking for a new direction – and the satisfaction of earning a paycheck again. However, it was a daunting challenge.

“It was like rubbing my eyes and feeling I had just woken up from a long sleep,” Parker said. “So much had changed since I was last an active participant in the workforce, mostly due to technological advances.”

A chat with a neighbor led Parker to The Career Place (TCP) in Woburn, one of two One-Stop Career Centers, along with Cambridge’s Career Source, chartered by the Metro North Regional Employment Board and managed by Middlesex Community College.

In the 2016 fiscal year, The Career Place and Career Source helped more than 17,000 people of all ages, education levels and backgrounds enter or re-enter the workforce through a wide range of services including career counseling, resume writing, job-search techniques and skills assessments, computer skills development and referrals to further education and training.

Additionally, they assisted more than 1,000 companies with recruitment and employee professional development, and more than 90 youths with critical case-management and job-readiness and training services.

At TCP, Parker started taking classes, attending a networking group, using the center’s resource library, and connecting with staff. Career Development Counselor Kathleen Weislein, who was coaching and helping her with resume writing, encouraged Parker to take the National Retail Federation’s 40-hour Customer Service and Sales course at the Career Source in March, taught by Retail Skills Instructor Kathleen Dachowski.

“In an amazingly short time I realized that retail is actually perfect for someone of my age, interests, background, and abilities,” said Parker, adding the strength of the course was Dachowski’s ability to teach from her real-world retail experience.

On March 30, Parker, who worked as a freelance editor after college, began working at the Barnes and Noble in Burlington as a children’s lead bookseller.

“The centers' training and retraining classes help those of us who need current marketable skills get up to speed -- yes, resume building, networking, and interview practice, but also LinkedIn, Twitter, Microsoft Office, and QuickBooks -- so we can be as well equipped as possible as we try to get back in the game,” said Parker. “Both the Woburn and Cambridge centers far exceeded my expectations. To a person, the staff were friendly, efficient, helpful, and professional.”

Like Parker, Tim Blevins credited the personal attention and dedication of the Career Source staff in helping him land a new job. After two decades working in coffee shops, Blevins, 40, had had enough. He quit his job of nine years, with no back-up plan. “In retrospect, it wasn’t the best decision,” he said. “I really had no idea where to start.”

Blevins applied for jobs online, but was not finding success. A friend suggested the Career Source, so he made a phone call to find out what services they offered. “I spoke to a representative and was quite surprised by how personable he was,” said Blevins. “I could tell he wasn’t reading from a script.”

Blevins took a seminar about re-entering the workforce taught by Career Development Counselor Elgin Summerfelt, which he credits with keeping his job search on track and his spirits up.

“He talked about not feeling bad about being unemployed or the rejection that comes with the job-searching process, which can be hard psychologically,” said Blevins. “We learned how to put our best selves forward, how to interact in an interview and really be prepared.”

Three weeks ago, Blevins began working as an innkeeper at the Bertram Inn in Brookline and aspires to one day own an inn himself. “Without the Career Source, I don’t think I would have gotten this job,” he said. “I was not prepared, but the Career Source gave me the tools I needed to succeed.”

Number of MCC Commonwealth Honors Scholars Continues to Grow 6/20/20177/10/2017 11:05 AM
The Commonwealth Honors Program (CHP) at Middlesex Community College is attracting a growing number of students who elect to study at a more advanced level. And the number of students who recently graduated as Commonwealth Honors Scholars increased almost 20 percent.

Students who complete their degrees through CHP are guaranteed transfer to other Commonwealth Honors Programs at any state college or university, and can enhance their applications for other four-year public or private institutions.

“The 38 Honors Scholars who just graduated are outstanding students and all are continuing their education to pursue bachelor’s degrees at excellent four-year institutions,” said Middlesex CHP Director and History Professor David Kalivas.

“Our honors graduates transfer to top schools, including Smith College, UMass Amherst Honors College, Mount Holyoke College, Amherst College, Cornell University, UMass Boston, UMass Lowell, Boston University, and Johns Hopkins University, among others,” he said.

“These students made a great choice by starting their college careers here at Middlesex – where we combine a quality educational experience with exceptional affordability,” added Kalivas.

MCC’s Commonwealth Honors Program is part of an integrated network of honors programs throughout the Massachusetts public college and university system. It offers a variety of honors course options, as well as opportunities for students to master research and presentation techniques, and engage in extra and co-curricular activities, including field trips and guest lectures.

To graduate with honors, Middlesex students are expected to complete a minimum of three honors courses, one of which must be an interdisciplinary team-taught seminar. Students must also participate in the annual Honors Conference, a public opportunity for students to display and explain their research.

Registration for MCC’s fall semester is now open and classes begin Tuesday, Sept. 5. For more information about the Commonwealth Honors Program at Middlesex, visit https://www.middlesex.mass.edu/honors/ or call 781-280-3553.

Middlesex Community College student James Carroll, of Arlington, has been named one of this year’s Massachusetts Department of Higher Education’s 29 Who Shine, an annual program recognizing outstanding students representing each of the state’s 29 public colleges and universities: 15 community colleges, nine state universities and five University of Massachusetts campuses.

Chosen because of his academic achievements, record of student leadership, and commitment to community service and civic engagement, Carroll was celebrated at the seventh annual 29 Who Shine Student Recognition Ceremony held recently at the Massachusetts State House.

“The 29 Who Shine honorees are exceptional student leaders who saw a way to improve something and acted on it, and for that we are grateful. They are a credit to the colleges and universities they attend. We are proud of their contributions to their communities and the Commonwealth,” said Education Secretary James Peyser.

“James Carroll has made good on Massachusetts taxpayers’ investment in his education,” said Carlos E. Santiago, Commissioner of Higher Education. “Every year the 29 Who Shine remind us that our public college and university graduates represent the future of the Commonwealth. They are here to learn, here to stay, and it is incredibly inspiring to see how each honoree is contributing to our common good.”

Graduating this month with an AS degree in Engineering Science Transfer/Mechanical Engineering, Carroll is a nontraditional student who works and maintains a solid GPA in a rigorous program of study. As president of the STEM Club, he introduced new engineering technologies to his peers during regular meetings and special events. He also pioneered the inaugural MCC Science Fair, and was named 2016 STEM Club member of the year.

Carroll is planning to enroll at UMass Lowell in the fall and pursue a bachelor’s degree in mechanical engineering, with a minor in bioengineering. His long-term goal is to complete an MBA and start his own company in the field of bioengineering.

The 19th annual Middlesex Community College Celebrity Forum will feature David Ortiz, retired Boston Red Sox designated hitter, interviewed by Dan Roche, award-winning sports anchor and reporter for WBZ-TV News, at 8 p.m. Thursday, June 8, in the Lowell Memorial Auditorium. Tickets go on sale Friday, April 7.

Proceeds from Celebrity Forum support scholarships for Middlesex students. Since 2004, $269,000 in Celebrity Forum Scholarships has been awarded to 104 MCC students. In addition to Celebrity Forum Scholarships, the MCC Foundation annually awards more than $100,000 in student scholarships.

David Americo Ortiz Arias, popularly known as “Big Papi,” is the recently retired Boston Red Sox designated hitter. A proud Dominican-American, Ortiz has an undisputed talent for hitting larger-than-life home runs for the Sox. As a young boy, he had a special liking for the game, as his father played baseball for years in Dominican pro and semi-pro leagues. Due to his large physique, Ortiz was pushed into basketball in high school. But his love of baseball earned him a contract with the Seattle Mariners, who then traded him to the Minnesota Twins. He played for the Twins from 1997 to 2002, and the Red Sox from 2003 to 2016. Ortiz is a 10-time All Star and three-time World Series Champion. He currently holds the Boston Red Sox single-season record for home runs with 54, and is an all-time leader in Major League Baseball history for home runs, RBIs and hits by a designated hitter.

Ortiz will be interviewed by Dan Roche, an award-winning sports anchor and reporter for WBZ-TV News and myTV38 (WSBK-TV). A leader in Boston sports coverage for two decades, Roche won a New England Emmy Award for Outstanding Sports Series for “Red Sox This Week.”

MCC’s Celebrity Forum is an annual event that presents well-known personalities for the educational and cultural enrichment of area residents. Presenting Sponsor of all 19 Celebrity Forum events is The TJX Companies, Inc.

  Past Celebrity Forum speakers include Walter Cronkite with Doris Kearns Goodwin, Colin Powell, former President George Bush with former First Lady Barbara Bush, Rudy Giuliani, David McCullough, Barbara Walters, Tim Russert, Geena Davis, Mike Wallace and Chris Wallace, Jay Leno, Sarah Ferguson, Ken Burns, Robin Roberts, Michael J.

Biotech Exec & MCC Alum Robert Kenyon to Address Class of ’174/18/20175/26/2017 10:55 AM
Middlesex Community College’s Commencement exercises for the approximately 1,400 members of the Class of 2017 will be held at 10 a.m. Thursday, May 25, in Lowell Memorial Auditorium, 50 E. Merrimack St. The processional will begin at 9:30 a.m. in front of MCC’s Lowell campus Cowan Center, located diagonally from the auditorium.

This year’s Commencement speaker will be alum Robert Kenyon (Class of 1995), Biogen’s Vice President of North American Manufacturing Operations. He will also be presented the 2017 Distinguished Alumni Award.

Kenyon enrolled in MCC’s innovative Biotechnology Program as part of a federal program for dislocated defense workers. In October 1994, at the conclusion of the six-month program, he was placed in an internship on the manufacturing floor at Biogen.

Eleven months later, he was hired full time, working the 11 p.m. to 7 a.m. overnight manufacturing shift. There were 30 people working in manufacturing at that time. Today, he supervises the company’s manufacturing facilities and general operations sites in Research Triangle Park, N.C., home to approximately 1,300 employees.

After being awarded an MCC Biotechnology Technician Certificate in 1995, Kenyon continued his education while he worked, earning an associate degree in Biotechnology from MCC in 1997. And, in 2000, he was awarded a bachelor’s degree in Biomedical Laboratory and Clinical Sciences from Boston University.

“Middlesex really set me up well,” he said. “I was in school learning concepts about the business in the classrooms and in the labs, and then going to work at night and seeing it all in practice. I really took to manufacturing – this intersection of biology and engineering.”

As Vice President of North American Manufacturing Operations, Kenyon oversees Drug Substance Manufacturing, Drug Product Manufacturing, North American External Manufacturing, and North American Facilities for the company.

Kenyon serves on the Board of the Biogen Foundation and on the Executive Committee and Board of Directors of the North Carolina Biosciences Organization. He is a member of MCC’s Biotechnology Advisory Board, the Parenteral Drug Association, and the International Society of Pharmaceutical Engineers. A New Hampshire native, Kenyon now lives North Carolina with his wife and two dogs.

Middlesex Celebrates Advanced Manufacturing Program Graduates4/4/20174/18/2017 3:27 PM
Eighteen Middlesex Community College students recently received certificates in Machining and Electronics during a graduation ceremony for the Advanced Manufacturing Training Program held recently on the Lowell campus.

Originally developed as part of a $500,000 Workforce Competitiveness Trust Fund Grant awarded by the state to the North Shore Workforce Investment Board, the Advanced Manufacturing Training Program funded by a Sector Partnership National Emergency Grant. The grant supports partnerships between the Northeast Advanced Manufacturing Consortium and the region’s education and workforce organizations. Those include community colleges and vocational technical schools, career centers, workforce investment boards, and local employers, and provide training and assist participants in finding jobs within the manufacturing industry.

“A number of these students are already employed and we are confident all of them will be offered employment,” said Lisa Tuzzolo, MCC’s Advanced Manufacturing Program Manager. “This program has strengthened our partnerships – and relationships – with vocational schools, workforce investment boards, and career centers.”

Graduates of the Advanced Manufacturing Training Program completed more than 400 hours of training in basic machining or electronics. They gained hands-on experience to begin careers in the high-demand manufacturing industry, including working in aerospace, defense, medical devices, computers and electronics.

For more information about the Advanced Manufacturing Training Program at Middlesex, contact Lisa Tuzzolo, MCC’s Advanced Manufacturing Program Manager at tuzzulol@middlesex.mass.edu.

Middlesex Community College Opens Asian-American Student Center3/3/20174/5/2017 5:32 PM
Middlesex Community College celebrated the opening of its new Asian American Connections Center on the Lowell campus.

MCC President James C. Mabry cut the ribbon to open the center, along with special guests State Senator Eileen Donoghue, State Rep. Rady Mom, Bopha Malone, Vice President, Regional Business Advisor, for Enterprise Bank, and member of the MCC Board of Trustees, Virak Uy, Director of MCC’s Asian American Student Advancement Program, and other members of the MCC community.

MCC’s Asian American Connections Center is made possible by a recent five-year, $1.7 million grant from the U.S. Department of Education’s Asian American Native American Pacific Islander-Serving Institution (AANAPISI) program.

Under the grant, Asian-American students attending Middlesex will receive a range of support services and co-curricular activities designed to improve their college-going experience, as well as their completion and transfer outcomes.

In addition to the Asian American Connections Center, the college will create a peer-support program, titled The Asian American Student Advancement Program, to increase a sense of connection and belonging to the college.

The program will also include personalized support to better navigate college processes; interventions focused on continued support for writing skills to aid ELL students as they transition to college; and the development of academic curriculum related to the cultural heritage of Asian-American students.

More than 11 percent of MCC credit students are Asian American, primarily Southeast Asian. Among that cohort, 70 percent apply for financial aid, and the majority are also from families in which they are the first to attend college.

Middlesex Community College Named Voter Friendly Campus3/27/20174/5/2017 3:46 PM
Middlesex Community College is one of 83 campuses nationwide – and one of two campuses in Massachusetts – to be designated a Voter Friendly Campus by Campus Vote Project, a national nonpartisan organization, and the National Association of Student Personnel Administrators (NASPA) – Student Affairs Administrators in Higher Education.

This designation recognizes institutions for planning and implementing practices that encourage students to register and vote in the 2016 general election and in coming years. MCC is one of five U.S. community colleges selected to participate in a national initiative supporting civic learning and demographic engagement by NASPA.

“Middlesex abides by – and exceeds – the requirements of the Higher Education Act of 1965 that mandates availability of voter registration forms to all students,” said Sheri Denk, Civic Engagement Specialist. “We are especially proud to have developed meaningful civic engagement programming that helps our students explore their political beliefs, engage in the democratic process, and establish participatory habits to last beyond their college experience.”

Throughout the recent election cycle, MCC hosted and participated in a number of civic engagement events. Events included a special event for Constitution Day, titled “The Supreme Court: Appointments and Decisions;” a student visit to the Edward Kennedy Institute of the United States Senate; organizing and participating in a number of campuswide voter registration events; participating in National Voter Registration Day; and hosting a special event on election day.

In addition to numerous civic engagement opportunities, MCC has developed a comprehensive website where visitors can learn more about local and national elections and get access to other important voting information from nonpartisan sources.

MCC’s Free Spring Concert Series Begins with Music for Guitar 3/13/20143/30/2017 11:38 AM
A World of Music, Middlesex Community College’s 2017 spring concert series, begins with Melodies Through Ages & Places: Music for Solo Guitar, and Two Guitars and Tenor, to be held at 8 p.m. Friday, March 31, in MCC’s Concert Hall (Building 6), on the Bedford campus, 591 Springs Road. The concert is free and open to the public.

Middlesex music faculty member Raley Beggs, guitar, will be joined by Austin Burns, tenor, and Jonas Kublickas, guitar and melodica, for a concert of trios by Samuel Barber, Charles Ives, Cole Porter, and songs from the Traditional American Songbook. Beggs will also perform solo guitar pieces by Francesco da Milano, Enrique Granados and Claude Debussy.

Beggs earned a bachelor of music at Florida State University, and a master of music from New England Conservatory of Music. He teaches and performs widely throughout the greater Boston area as a soloist and chamber musician. He joined the music faculty at MCC in fall 2016.

Burns, tenor and songwriter, started performing live upon settling in Austin, Texas, in 2010. A young songwriter with a seemingly ancient soul, his genre-defying music bows to no convention.

A native of Vilnius, Lithuania, Kublickas won the Baltic States Guitar competition. Recent performances include recitals of solo and chamber music repertoire at the New England Conservatory, Boston University and throughout Massachusetts.

Other upcoming concerts in the A World of Music series include an MCC Faculty Composers Concert at 7 p.m. Sunday, April 23, in the Bedford campus Concert Hall; Exploring LGBT Issues Through Music at 3 p.m. Saturday, April 29, in MCC’s Federal Building Assembly Room on the Lowell campus; and Trios for Flute, Cello and Piano at 8 p.m. Friday, May 12, in the Bedford campus Concert Hall.

Middlesex CC Receives $100K Grant from Cummings Foundation6/13/20163/28/2017 12:41 PM
Middlesex Community College is one of 100 local nonprofits to receive grants of $100,000 each through Cummings Foundation’s “$100K for 100” program. Middlesex was chosen from a total of 479 applicants, during a competitive review process.

Patricia Demaras, MCC Assistant Dean of International/Multicultural Student Affairs, and Lisa Doucett, Director of Grand Development, joined approximately 300 other guests at a recent reception at TradeCenter 128 in Woburn to celebrate the $10 million infusion into Greater Boston’s nonprofit sector. With the conclusion of this grant cycle, Cummings Foundation has now awarded more than $140 million to local nonprofits alone.

“This Cummings Foundation grant will help Middlesex sustain and expand programs that support our diverse student body and help all who come to our college succeed,” said President James Mabry. “Students recruited and trained to be peer advocates and achievement coaches work on many levels to close achievement gaps, and build persistence and success across the college. This grant will be critical in our ability to reach more students and help them to achieve their educational goals.”

The three-year grant will enable Middlesex to build capacity to enhance academic and career opportunities for students, using peer-support staff to improve engagement, leadership and job readiness.

The college will expand its successful student-outreach model of peer liaisons (now well established at the Lowell-campus Multicultural Center), to hire trained student Achievement Liaisons (AL) and a program coordinator to work out of the Bedford Multicultural Center. ALs will reach out to and support Bedford-campus students who are more likely to experience gaps in achievement – such as those who are first-generation to college, ethnic/racial minorities, and/or who are from nontraditional or low-income households.

The Cummings Foundation has also given $5,000 to MCC’s annual Celebrity Forum in past years. Proceeds from Celebrity Forum help raise funds for MCC Foundation student scholarships.

The $100K for 100 program supports nonprofits that are not only based in, but also primarily serve, Middlesex, Essex and Suffolk counties. This year, the program is benefiting 41 different cities and towns within the commonwealth.

Through this place-based initiative, Cummings Foundation aims to give back in the area where it owns commercial buildings, all of which are managed, at no cost to the Foundation, by its

affiliate Cummings Properties. Founded in 1970 by Bill Cummings of Winchester, the Woburn-based commercial real estate firm leases and manages more than 10 million square feet of space, the majority of which exclusively benefits the Foundation.

“We admire and very much appreciate the important work that nonprofit organizations like Middlesex Community College are doing in the local communities where our colleagues and clients live and work,” said Joel Swets, Cummings Foundation’s executive director. “We are delighted to support their efforts.”

This year’s diverse group of grant recipients represents a wide variety of causes, including education, homelessness prevention, elder services, healthcare, and food insecurity. Most of the grants will be paid over two to five years.

The complete list of 100 grant winners is available at www.CummingsFoundation.org

The event is free and open to the public.

O'Connor is a native of Lowell, where much of his writing is set. He is the author of “Smokestack Lightning,” a collection of short stories, and the novels “The Spy in the City of Books,” and “The Witch at Rivermouth.”

His short stories have appeared in The Massachusetts Review, The Houston Literary Review, Aethlon, Sobotka Literary Magazine, and elsewhere. His short story, "Work, Music and Love," recently won the Helen Literary Award, while "St. Lucy's Day" received honorable mention in a short story contest in the British journal, Open Road Review.

MCC’s MILES program offers stimulating, interactive daytime seminars and workshops – with no term papers, tests or grades – for active, older adults. This informational and entertaining Opening Session provides community members an opportunity to learn more about MILES and the courses being offered, and is a good opportunity to meet instructors and peers. Light refreshments will be served.

The spring session of MILES runs from March 27 through May 4 on the Bedford campus. The two-hour study groups meet from 2 to 4 p.m., in one-, two- or five-week sessions, and are facilitated by individuals with expertise in their field, including some MCC faculty and staff. The workshops and seminars focus on a variety of topics, including movies, nature, art, literature, technology, health and environmental issues, and history.

Each MILES course is $15 up to a maximum of $95. All MILES participants enjoy free use of the MCC Fitness Center and library. For the complete schedule of MILES courses, contact Lauren Ellis at 781-280-3669 or visit www.middlesex.mass.edu/MILES To register for MILES courses, call 1-800-818-3434.

Middlesex Student Receives Hurst Review NCLEX Scholarship3/16/20173/22/2017 10:54 AM
Middlesex Community College Nursing student Diane Vazquez-Baez, of Lowell, has recently been named a Hurst Review NCLEX Scholar. This scholarship is designed to assist nursing students who are also members of Phi Theta Kappa – the national honor society for two-year colleges – prepare for and take the NCLEX (National Council Licensure Examination) nursing exam.

Vazquez-Baez was one of 10 students selected from 470 applicants to receive this scholarship. She will receive free access to the Hurst Review study materials for the exam (a $300 value), as well as a $250 scholarship award to pay for the NCLEX exam fees.

“I am very grateful to have received this award,” said Vazquez-Baez. “I made a commitment to become a nurse because I know it’s the best choice for myself and my family. My time at Middlesex has been life changing – I have never felt out of place, even as an adult learner. The teachers here have pushed me to become the best student, and the best nurse, I can be.”

After graduating in May, Vazquez-Baez plans to continue her education at a four-year institution for a career as a critical care nurse.

MCC’s Nursing Program is designed to prepare students to take the NCLEX-RN. The program provides a sound background in field-related science, technical skills, and general education with learning experiences in the classroom, nursing laboratory and clinical practicums.

MCC Awarded Grant to Help Refugees Earn Health Credentials 1/24/20173/16/2017 10:30 AM
Middlesex Community College has been awarded a one-year, $79,000 grant from the Massachusetts Department of Higher Education’s Bridges to College Program to support the college’s new Health Career Credentialing for Adult Refugees (HCCAR) program.

HCCAR is designed to help the employment outlook for Lowell’s significant adult refugee population, explained Denise Garrow-Pruitt, Assistant Dean of Allied Health.

“Many adult learners entering the country have previous experience in the health care field, but do not have credentials recognized by the U.S. government,” said Garrow-Pruitt.

“This new initiative will enable low-income refugees to receive certification through our Academy of Health Professions (AHP), which offers short-term training and college-credit courses that prepare students for entry-level health care jobs,” she explained. “This training can enhance the adult-refugee students’ employability at higher wages in local hospitals, offices, nursing homes or clinics.”

HCCAR will provide intensive student supports to 30 adult learners of diverse ethnicities, and give them access to academic coaching and a bilingual advisor. Students can enroll in one of three AHP programs: Nursing Assistant, Phlebotomist, and Medical Office Assistant.

Student refugees completing the AHP programs will be able to register and take national certification exams in their fields, added Garrow-Pruitt. Certifications are also stackable and can be applied toward associate degrees at MCC, and enable students to transfer in pursuit of bachelor’s degrees.

For further information about MCC’s Health Career Credentialing for Adult Refugees program, contact Denise Garrow-Pruitt, Assistant Dean of Allied Health, at PRUITTD@middlesex.mass.edu or 978-322-8407.

MCC Designated One of the Top Military-Friendly Schools Nationwide1/19/20173/9/2017 10:55 AM
Thanks to Middlesex Community College’s Veterans Resource Center, Veterans Advisory Board, and other special veterans services, MCC has been designated a Bronze-Level Military Friendly School by Victory Media.

The 2017 list of Military Friendly Schools honors the top colleges, universities and trade schools in the country. They are recognized for doing the most to embrace America’s military service members, veterans and spouses as students and ensure their success both on campus in the classroom, and after graduation.

“Middlesex provides educational opportunities as well as numerous veterans resources to help make the transition from military to civilian life easier,” said Pam Flaherty, Dean of Students. “This award recognizes the work Middlesex does to create a welcoming environment for our veterans.”

Veterans at MCC have become more engaged on campus through the Veterans Resource Center on both the Bedford and Lowell campuses, said Flaherty. Students are helping their peers through peer-mentoring programs, and through a variety of Veterans Club activities. These activities include Q&A sessions about veterans’ benefits, and “Heroes Among Us,” a speaking program that provides an opportunity for an MCC veteran to tell his or her story about their service.

MCC has also received grant funding to provide Green Zone training to a wide range of faculty and staff. Green Zones help create a highly-visible network of college employees who better understand the unique needs of active military veterans and their family members.

Victory Media is a service-disabled, veteran-owned small business that has been serving the military community since 2001. The list of Military Friendly Schools was compiled through extensive research and a data-driven survey of thousands of schools nationwide approved for Post-9/11 I Bill funding. For more information, visit www.militaryfriendlyschools.com.

Middlesex CC Offers IT Cybersecurity Degree Program2/21/20173/7/2017 10:15 AM
Middlesex Community College’s Information Technology - Cybersecurity Transfer degree program is one of the first community-college Information Technology programs to focus intensely on this high-demand career field.

“The world is now more connected than ever,” said Syeda Ferdous Begum, Associate Professor of STEM. “We use the Internet for banking, shopping and so much more. But those conveniences bring about security risks and concerns. Individuals with a cybersecurity background are now high in demand.”

“No business can survive without having some kind of IT infrastructure,” added Donald Brady, Assistant Dean of STEM. “They all need computer networks to support the work they do – and that network needs to be protected.”

The FBI predicts cybersecurity will eventually become the number one threat against the United States, said Brady. And the U.S. Department of Labor projects computer-security specialists’ employment to grow by 22 percent – up to approximately 65,700 new jobs – by 2020.

MCC’s Information Technology - Cybersecurity Transfer degree program is designed to prepare students for transfer to a bachelor’s degree program or for employment in a variety of entry-level information-security analyst positions.

“We are always upgrading our curriculum,” said Begum. “To develop frameworks, we use guidelines established by the National Security Agency (NSA), the U.S. Department of Homeland Security, and Centers of Academic Excellence in Information Assurance/Cyber Defense.”

MCC’s Cybersecurity curriculum was also created with guidance from the college’s Information Technology Advisory Board, which includes cybersecurity professionals from organizations such as Mitre Corp. and MIT Lincoln Labs, said Brady.

Program development was funded by a grant from BATEC (Broadening Advanced Technological Education Connections), a national center of excellence for computing and information technologies, sponsored by the National Science Foundation.

Students who graduate from MCC’s innovative IT Cybersecurity Program should be well positioned for the future, Begum said. “Our students are learning the latest IT cybersecurity topics, including writing secure scripting using Python, and implementing secure networking, virtualization and cloud computing.

“After completion of this degree, students will be able to find jobs – and also transfer to four-year degree programs with the most current knowledge,” she said.

“Our advisory board and our workforce data tell us this program offers the skills regional employers are looking for,” agreed Brady.
