Save the Date: College Readiness Conference Hosted by MCC


Please save the date. MCC is hosting a professional development event on campus this June titled "MINDFULLY DEFINING COLLEGE READINESS " and on Friday, June 2 from 8:30 AM-3:30 PM.  We hope you’ll join us for conversation and collegiality as we explore several questions around what it means to be college ready. Some highlights include the following:

•       Keynote Speaker – Buddhist priest who will talk about using the practice of mindfulness in educational settings.

•       Student Voice Videos – Listen to first-hand accounts from MCC and local high school students about their ideas surrounding college readiness – and the gaps that exist between learning in high school and college.

•       Dialogue Groups – Discuss the current challenges in preparing students for college – and collaborate with other high school and college faculty to help facilitate the transition for students.

We have a great group of educators from MCC, SUNY Brockport, and RCSD who are working on the conference facilitation committee to share resources. I hope you can join us. Feel free to contact me at <mailto:ajohnston@monroecc.edu> with any questions.
