<p>Good morning from my corner of the College, where I am eagerly anticipating the dedication of the Bioscience Education Center on the Germantown Campus! This outstanding new facility houses STEM classrooms, labs, and offices, as well as a wonderful conference center, and provides fantastic, state-of-the-art resources for our students. I hope to see you at 9:30 a.m. this Wednesday for the dedication! If you cannot make it, please view it on an MCTV rebroadcast.</p>
<p>Speaking of STEM, I signed a new articulation agreement with Shepherd College last Wednesday. This gives our students who complete a STEM associate's degree the option of pursuing a bachelor's degree at Shepherd in Shepherdstown, West Virginia. This agreement, and all our articulation agreements, can be accessed at our <a href="">articulation webpage</a>.</p>
<p>A fitting tribute to the legacy of Professor and Coach Tom Bichy took place over the weekend when MC hosted a soccer tournament at the Maryland SoccerPlex. Four top-10 nationally ranked teams--including our own seventh-ranked Raptors--competed hard. Coach Bichy started our soccer program and coached for 37 illustrious years. I know he would lead the charge in rooting for Coach Pedro Braz and the Raptors!</p>
<p>Let me draw special attention to a memorandum sent on Friday regarding support of pregnant students from our Title IX Coordinator Christopher Moy. The message reminds us of our inviolable commitment to all Title IX requirements and our obligation to provide academic adjustments and accommodations for pregnant students. Please seek Mr. Moy's guidance if you have questions.</p>
<p>Earlier this year I was pleased to announce that Montgomery College was one of the 150 community colleges invited to apply for the Aspen Prize for Community College Excellence. It's an honor to be invited! Last Thursday, the Aspen Institute announced the <a href="">10 Finalists</a> for the $1 million award. Though MC is not on that list, I am proud of our efforts--your efforts--to help students change their lives every day. We continue to make great strides in the service of our students.</p>
<p>In looking ahead, please mark your calendar for my first Town Hall Meeting on Wednesday, September 17, at the Takoma Park/Silver Spring Campus. It will be held in the Commons Atrium and start at 2 p.m. I look forward to seeing you there! However, if you cannot make it, I invite you to submit questions via e-mail to, and watch on LiveStream from your computer.</p>
<p>May you have a productive week in your corners of the College!</p>
