Updates From the President
I recently returned from leading an accreditation site visit team at a neighboring community college for the New England Association of Schools and Colleges (NEASC)/ Commission of Institutions of Higher Education (CIHE). Last year, I was asked by the president of CIHE, our regional accreditation agency, to lead a team of eight educational professionals to visit and report on how this college meets the nine new standards for accreditation. It was an excellent opportunity become familiar with these new standards.
Site visits are intensive, as you work on tight deadlines, trying to learn about and get a feel for an institution in a very short period of time. Throughout the visit, as I gained insight into how this college worked, it was impossible not to reflect on my home institution. What was happening was what I had hoped for: I was learning more about the best things community colleges can do, and thinking about ways to do them even better.
The whole exercise reminded me of the many enriching co-curricular activities we offer our students, and how this helps them learn and grow through new experiences and reflective exercises. Everything from leading the volleyball team to victory, to traveling abroad, to meeting state and local leaders helps our students gain positive experiences that help them grow as individuals. Perspective is wonderful and exceedingly useful, and I found the deep dive into the structure and culture of another college a beneficial experience that allowed me to reflect on the strength and successes I see every day here at Middlesex.
Another recent highlight was last Saturday’s Fall Open House. It was great to see students, faculty, deans and staff welcome our future students and their families to MCC. I especially enjoyed watching the community enjoy our beautiful Bedford campus on such a great fall day – the Bedford Quad was bustling. These touchpoints with our students are so meaningful and I am grateful to have such a collaborative campus community that supports our students at every stage of their journey at Middlesex.
