Hello and Welcome to the Minority Serving Community Colleges and Affiliates (MSCCA) LINCS CoP!
In an effort to foster intergroup connections and get a sense of who our wonderful MSCCA CoP colleagues are, I'm hoping that you all would take a few minutes to introduce or in some cases reintroduce yourself to the group.
I will kick it off...
I am Edmund Graham, a doctoral student at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign and the moderator for the MSCCA LINCS CoP. I work for the Office of Community College Research and Leadership (OCCRL) where I work with a project called Pathways to Results focused on improving student pathways with a focus on equitable outcomes and another project related to STEM Pathways in Illinois Minority Serving Community Colleges. I am particularly interested in improving student pathways for traditionally marginalized student populations in community colleges (including MSCCs) -- Among many other interests related to equity, community colleges/MSCCs, career pathways, college readiness, etc. It is my hope that this group will foster meaningful connections around topics that we have an interest in -- and in some cases are very passionate about!
Now that I've kicked it off, I would love to know more about you! Tell us all a little more about you including, but not limited to...
Where you're from (institution/organization)
What sparked your interest in the MSCCA CoP
What you hope to gain from being a part of the MSCCA
Anything else you would like for us to know about you.
