Thanksgiving Message 2019

Dear faculty, staff, students and friends,

As the fall semester heads into its final phase, I hope you are able to take a little time this week to connect with family and friends and have an opportunity to reflect on the many positive things in your busy lives. In particular, the important role you play at this amazing institution in supporting our students and our community. For nearly 50 years, MCC has changed the lives of over 26,000 students and alumni, and hundreds of employees.

At a time when the nation gathers together to give thanks, I want to share my gratitude with the entire MCC community for their dedication and commitment to student success. I am appreciative of the generous support of the college's many donors and community partners who make it possible for us to offer outstanding programming and state-of-the-art teaching and learning facilities. I am grateful for the countless hours of important committee work faculty and staff have engaged in, including: the NECHE Interim Report, ACUE and SOTL, the Strategic Planning Committee, the Enrollment Working Group, the Classroom Refresh Team, and Leading for Change, to name a few. And, I am humbled by the commitment of our caring faculty and staff who support students on their paths to personal and professional growth.

Without you, MCC would not be able to transform lives through education. I believe that as an institution — and a nation — our strength lies in our ability to celebrate our differences and want to thank all of you for putting our students and their unique lived experiences at the center of what you do.

Happy Thanksgiving!

Jim Mabry

President, Middlesex Community College
