MCC : Culture of Equity-Mindedness and Inclusive Excellence
A culture of equity-mindedness addresses the ways the college serves and advances the institution’s goal of inclusive excellence. Rather than placing responsibility for success upon historically underserved and underrepresented populations, Middlesex Community College takes responsibility for creating equitable outcomes for all. We raise awareness of inequities as we work to eliminate them by intentionally removing barriers to success and closing opportunity and achievement gaps.
