  • Message from the Executive Committee

    Thank you for your interest in the MHCC chapter of the American Association for Women in Community Colleges! Our chapter began in 1996 to provide professional development, social events for MHCC employees, and fundraising for the Shelie Macias Memorial Scholarship.

    As our chapter approaches its 20th year, we are still going strong and have an unwavering commitment to serving the needs of women working at MHCC. We want to ensure that AAWCC continues to be relevant and timely on matters that are important to YOU.

    In spring 2015, our chapter facilitated a Day of Dialogue event in alignment with the National Chapter’s efforts and gathered campus-wide input on hot topics surrounding women at MHCC. Common responses included issues around maternity/paternity leave; updating and expanding lactation rooms; mentoring opportunities; and work/life balance. The responses we gathered from faculty, staff, and students will guide our programming for the upcoming year and beyond.

    Please join us for an amazing year! Together we can continue the important work of supporting and maximizing the potential of our campus community.

    Warmest regards,

    The Executive Committee
