Innovation is the Key
At Middlesex, we pride ourselves on our
entrepreneurial spirit and innovative
attitudes. With the help of our many
community partners, friends and
supporters, the college is continually
looking forward to embrace "the new"
and welcome the changes we know will
prepare our students for successful
futures.
This issue of Profiles celebrates the
innovative people, practices and
programs at Middlesex. We have adopted
new technologies and teaching methods,
such as our RAMP-Up Math Program.
Profiles
We are providing our students ≠ especially our student veterans ≠ with
courses in the exciting field of positive psychology. And through our Center
for Entrepreneurship, we are encouraging MCC students to think big and
follow their dreams.
In these changing economic times, Middlesex
strives to be even more resourceful and flexible
in adapting to the needs of our students and
the community. I hope you enjoy reading our
"innovation" issue.
