What is SSMIT?

Our Mission:

The Student Services Mid-Management Initiative Team (SSMIT) is an interdisciplinary group of mid-level professionals who promote student success by collaborating and supporting fellow mid-managers through professional development and training.  This is achieved by exchanging ideas, developing partnerships, creating innovative programs, and providing services that nourish an overall sense of community and good citizenship.

Vision Statement:

The Division of Student Services plays an important part of the student’s experience at Monroe Community College. In collaboration with others, the division promotes student success by offering exceptional learning opportunities, services, and activities. Mid-managers have a vital role to play with these efforts.

In December 2010, I formally endorsed the creation of the Student Services Mid-management Initiative Team (SSMIT). My vision for SSMIT was to support the development of an official mid-management “team” to strengthen relationships, enhance collaborative efforts, improve communication, further develop leadership skills, and provide opportunities for mid-managers to contribute to the division and college.

It has been rewarding to watch the evolution of SSMIT as a team develop and flourish as they collectively contribute to the same priority and goal: student success. Their progress and efforts are measurable and impactful for the division and students.

I am honored that these mid-managers are a part of the MCC family.
