The purpose of these workshops is to bring the entire college community together in a fun, relaxed and informal manner in order to share information and reaffirm our collective commitment to an idea, value or topic of importance to us all.  From “student success” to “campus safety” to “wellbeing,” we know we can't do it alone!  All of us are inextricably connected to each other within this community.

Additionally, the content and activities of these two hour experiences are intended to help us learn more about each other, and gain a greater appreciation for who we are individually and what we do each and every day.  By spending this meaningful time with colleagues we may not see every day, we hope to inspire new connections that can help us continue to co-create an increasingly positive and affirming community at MVCC.

The purpose of this fun workshop is to bring us together, and remind us about the significance of our mission of student success here at MVCC - and just as importantly, to highlight the fact that each of us plays an important role in making that success happen.  We can't do it alone - all of our jobs are inherently connected, with everyone playing some part in helping our students to succeed.  In addition, the content and activities of this two hour experience are intended to help us learn more about each other, and gain a greater appreciation for what each of us does at the college every day. With a broader understanding of our mission, and the different elements contributing to student success, we can connect what we do in our jobs even more directly to the impact we can have on individual students.  Finally, by spending this meaningful time with colleagues we may not see every day, we can make new connections that can help us with how we do our jobs every day - right here at MVCC.

We also know we can't do it alone, and all of us are inherently connected to each other within this community.  Thus, we hope to glean feedback from you that helps the college to more closely align its day to day practices, processes and culture in a manner that favorably encourages our collective wellbeing.

Starting November 2015 and continuing through February 2016, the College will be providing mandatory training for all full-time employees regarding workplace violence prevention, discrimination, harassment and sexual harassment (Title IX).  One or more of the components of this training are required by law, therefore attendance at this training will be monitored to ensure each employee attends.

The purpose of this workshop is to bring us together in a fun, relaxed and informal manner in order to reaffirm our collective commitment to diversity, equity, and inclusion here at MVCC.  We will share information to help us honor and live out our fundamental values as this community’s college, in relation to creating a welcoming, affirming and empowering culture for everyone who works here, studies here, or visits here.  

We know that none of us can do this alone, and that all of us are inherently connected to each other within this community.  Through this work, we aim to glean feedback on our proposed diversity plan from all of you in hopes of improving our efforts further. Our goal is to more closely align our day-to-day practices, processes and culture in a manner that encourages greater diversity, equity, and inclusiveness.
