The College will be hosting the Massachusetts Community Colleges annual Teaching, Learning, & Student Development (TLSD) Conference on Friday, April 9th, 2021. This year, the TLSD Conference will explore how community colleges are impacted by and responding to the current pandemic and the issues raised during the past year. Our theme is "Tools for the New Normal: Innovations in Access, Equity, and Student Success."

Last March, community colleges had to pivot from traditional, in-person operations to provide remote education to all students. Since that time, institutions have embraced remote and online classrooms to continue to carry out the community college mission of delivering quality education to our students. The conference is an opportunity for Massachusetts community colleges to come together to share successes, lessons learned, and best practices with one another to enhance higher education across the state.

Vice Presidents Dr. James Keane and Dr. Lillian Ortiz asked Dean of the School of English and Humanities, Brady Hammond and Director of Student Accessibility Services, Kristie Proctor to lead conference planning and preparation. Currently, the planning team consists of Nancy Berthiaume-Donahue, Barbara Zabka, Patrick Printz, Selina Boria, Emily Vogel, Ken Dwyer, Sharon Marini, and Josh Martin.
