MCC is once again participating in the national Enough is Enough Campaign. It’s a Campaign to Stem Societal Violence. This concept came out of NASPA’s keynote address by the VP of Virginia Tech in the wake of the recent shooting. The campaign’s goal is to provide model strategies for broad-based interventions addressing youth violence on the nation's campuses through innovative partnerships among students, parents, and administrators.
