College Forum Scheduled for April 23 Has Been Postponed

The in person College Forum scheduled for April 23 at the Downtown Campus has been postponed due to the COVID-19 outbreak. This would have been the second College Forum held this academic year. The first College Forum was held on February 25 and you may view the meeting notes here.

The College Forum was created in response to a request from the College community to provide faculty, staff, students, and members of the Rochester community:

  • Direct access to members of the MCC Board of Trustees
  • Time to engage in dialogue
  • An opportunity to follow up on any concerns

In this spirit of cooperation and with shared governance partners, the College Forum Agreement was crafted.

We recognize that the College community has been asked to adapt to unprecedented changes in the last several weeks and we join you in adapting to change: on April 6 we will hold our first remote Board meeting, which will be livestreamed to all of you. The Board remains steadfastly committed to providing members of the College community with direct access to Board members and time to engage in dialogue and follow up on concerns via the College Forum. We anticipate that a second College Forum will be scheduled prior to the end of the academic year and that it will likely be in a Zoom meeting format. We will share additional details once they have been finalized.
