A letter from President Hammond
I hope that you will visit our campuses soon! We always love to see friends of the College and learn about what is happening in your lives. But I especially invite you to visit because the tremendous potential of our students is energizing! Each day I feel so fortunate to be with them and to hear their hopes and aspirations.
Our latest issue of Connections features some of the students who exemplify what it means to be part of a learning community like Mid.
Students in dual enrollment courses are highly motivated and ready to jumpstart their college careers.
Our students in the College’s new programs, Advanced Integrated Manufacturing (AIM) and Plastics, are gaining the knowledge and skills they will need to take our nation to the next level of industry and innovation. Laker athletes share their enthusiasm and drive with their teams and with their classmates.
At Mid, faculty talk about “T-shaped” preparation. By that we mean that students should gain broad, integrated knowledge across the curriculum (the horizontal part of the T) and also a depth of learning (the vertical part of the T) that will give them expertise in their chosen areas of study. Those who participate in the annual Student Showcase are demonstrating their commitment to such learning. We are all enriched when they share their talents and projects with us.
Learning at Mid spans and connects the generations. Our Lifelong Learning and Community Education programs provide opportunities beyond the traditional academic semester. Our partnership with MSU Extension for the Science Blast and Winter Blast events are just two examples of fun hands-on learning for the young and young-at-heart.
And so I hope that you will be with us soon. Talk with our students, take a class, cheer on our teams. Their energy will make you smile. Your support makes their achievements possible.
Thank you for your continued support of Mid, our programs, and especially our students. Our communities will be in good hands as they move from learning to leadership.
