In my first months at Middlesex Community College, I have found a community of professionals that are focused on students and student success day in and day out. The people at the college and in the community have been very warm and welcoming and I have greatly enjoyed getting out and meeting everyone. I can clearly see that people at the college love what they do and are dedicated to creating an environment where everyone teaches and everyone learns.
Middlesex is deeply connected to many organizations and learning about the ways the college engages all parts of its diverse communities is invigorating. In my meetings with community members and while attending community events, I continually hear positive comments about the college. Community members have made it clear they view the college as an invaluable partner and community leader. Wherever I go, they sing the praises of the MCC personnel they interact with.
A college with two distinct campuses, MCC offers a broad array of innovative programs and activities, with something for everyone. For me, learning about the programs and getting to know the dedicated faculty, staff and students on both campuses is inspiring and rewarding. Looking forward, I hope to connect with our many amazing alumni and hear how MCC has positively impacted their lives.
Whether helping students get started or helping them meet their career and transfer goals; working with our business partners to provide a workforce with 21st century skills; or just being a great community partner, this college does it all and does it well.
I am honored to be here and look forward to working closely with all of you to build a stronger and brighter future for this amazing institution.
All the best,
Dr. James C. Mabry
