TCC (Brighton Campus): Fall Conversation #3 - Student Voices

Please join us on Monday, Nov. 18, from 12:00-12:50 p.m., in 12-201, as the TCC continues its year-long focus on Cia Verschelden's book Bandwidth Recovery: Helping Students Reclaim Cognitive Resources Lost to Poverty, Racism, and Social Marginalization.

This event is a panel of current students and MCC alums who describe events and conditions that interfered with attention to learning, the changes they made to surmount barriers, how faculty members helped them succeed, and what they want faculty and others at the College to know and understand.


All faculty and staff are welcome.

Questions or comments? Please contact Amy Burtner, Brighton Faculty Chair for the TCC (


This event is designed to meet the following goal of the Teaching and Creativity Center:

  • Value our diversity and promote inclusivity

The particular outcomes for this conversation are:

  • Expanding awareness of student challenges and needs in order to provide a supportive, inclusive academic environment, and
  • Developing activities that promote being more open and inclusive of the diversity within our classes and in the MCC college community
