Launches Interim Home Page
A new interim home page for www.mccc.edu
is now up and running. The interim page was designed to simplify the home
page while the Web Advisory Committee continues its project to completely
redesign the college's website. According to Susan Bowen, this year the
committee has completed a user survey, conducted focus groups, analyzed
web statistics and usage data, and is poised to move forward with a redesign
in support of the college's new marketing efforts. Currently the committee
is in discussion with a consultant to assist us in moving forward.
All Over Opens at The Gallery
A new summer show at The Gallery will run through July 3. The exhibit
"celebrates the exuberant 'art spirit' that motivates human beings
to adorn, appropriate, change, embellish, color, and re-create the objects
and environments that define their lives," says Gallery Director
Tricia Fagan. "Many if not most people leave that energy behind in
childhood when they take up the serious business of being an adult."
A reception is set
for Saturday, June 14, 1 to 3:30 p.m., and a Gallery Conversation takes
place Wednesday, June 18 at noon. The Gallery is located on the second
floor of the Communications Building. More here

the Bystander to an Upstander
More than 100 New Jersey primary and secondary school educators gathered
at the Conference Center May 28 for a five-hour workshop that addressed
prejudice, its undercurrents, and proactive solutions. Topics ranged from
bullying and torture to the psyche that perpetuated the Holocaust and

Days to promote good will. Keynote speaker Dr. Joanne Plescia spoke
on the psychological profiles of people who bully, those who become victims,
and bystanders, and discussed the psychological profiles of those who
dont. Dr. Janice Cohn presented the case of a Montana town that
stood up against hate and the rescue of Danish Jews in 1943 by their Christian
fellow citizens in Nazi-occupied Denmark.
It is important
for people to gain greater awareness of all forms of prejudice,
said MCCC Professor Emeritus Saul Goldwasser, who is director of the Holocaust
Genocide Resource Center at MCCC. Teachers can play a critical role
in this effort in their very own classrooms. All of the speakers provided
valuable information in helping to encourage the kinds of individual acts
that combat intolerance. The day was quite illuminating. Photo here.
