“Massasoit Community College offers personalized invitations for potential and existing students to discover their own opportunities for greatness. This educational journey will be taken alongside experienced faculty, staff and coaches who understand that each student is unique from where they start to where they want to go.” Massasoit Community College Brand Rationale
After several months of work, which included interviews in the community and on campus with faculty, staff, and students, Massasoit Community College is excited to announce our new college brand. The new look and feel of our materials reflect what that research revealed: our students are creative, genuine, and authentic, and our College is student-centered, focused on helping students reach their full potential. At Massasoit, we are in the business of providing guidance, knowledge and opportunities to those who seek something greater.
In the coming weeks, the community can expect to see the new Massasoit logo and colors – navy and goldenrod – and our new open book logo across all our new materials. Our brand refresh comes alongside a new website, which will soon be ready for launch.
As we welcomed students back to campus this fall, the following changes and updates were made within the Massasoit community. It was a very busy summer, and while some names have changed, Massasoit’s comprehensive services for student success and growth have not.
TheIda da Cerezo O’Donnell Unity Center As you may have already heard, this fall Massasoit unveiled the Unity Center, a central location for students to examine and embrace the intersections of their identities, think critically about diversity and social justice, and utilize their unique and collective voices and talents to enact positive change. The Unity Center will house the Ubuntu Scholars mentoring program; a similar mentoring program designed for those identifying as female; the new Board of Trustees Student Mentorship Program; a larger mentoring program within the context of a student leadership institute; and a Peer Leadership program. The Women’s Resource Center has been merged into the Center to streamline services and programming offered to students.
The Unity Center is an exciting move forward for Massasoit’s diversity and inclusion efforts, and we look forward to sharing more about the specifics of the programs and activities that will be offered in the coming weeks. Email Jeff Joseph, director of the unity center, with any questions at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Advising, Career & Transfer Center The offices of Advisement & Counseling and Career Services have merged to become the Advising, Career & Transfer Center (ACT). The ACT Center continues to offer students academic and transfer guidance while also developing a stronger focus on career exploration. Any student seeking academic advising, career information or resume review, or transfer counseling may be referred to the ACT Center.
Please note that while the ACT Center can provide referrals to outside organizations, the Center does not provide personal counseling services. Students in crisis should be referred to the Dean of Students Office. Email Alessandra Monteiro, director of the ACT Center, with any questions at email@example.com.
Student Central & Student Center Student Central at Massasoit provides comprehensive enrollment services to prospective, current, and former students, in a convenient one-stop location. Services offered include: admissions; financial aid; registering for and adding/dropping classes; and student accounts. More information can be found on the Student Central website.
Additionally, the new Dining Hall in Brockton is complete and open for use. The space provides students, faculty, and staff with a beautiful space to gather. Student Life is now located on the lower level of the Student Center, and, as a reminder, Testing & Assessment is located on the lower level of the Student Center as well, in room 139.
Access and Disability Resources Access and Disability Resources is committed to providing reasonable accommodations for students with disabilities and supporting them in their pursuit of reaching their academic goals, while still meeting the academic and technical standards set for all students. This departmental name change reflects a more progressive philosophy which, while recognizing disability as one of the many components of diversity, focuses on the department’s core mission of removing barriers to ensure accessibility for all students, staff, faculty, and visitors to the college.
