Fall 2021 Massasoit Pride Mentorship Program
This fall we will be officially launching the Massasoit Pride Mentorship Program. The purpose of this program is to foster mentoring relationships between LGBTQIA+ identifying students and faculty/staff at Massasoit Community College. Students are required to be enrolled in fall courses to participate. During the fall mentoring cycle, students and mentors will have meetings on a regular basis. If you are interested in participating in the Massasoit Pride Mentorship Program, please complete the mentee ​(students) or mentor (staff/faculty) application. Email Jeff Joseph with any questions at jjoseph40@massasoit.mass.edu.

The LGBTQIA+ Equity Team
The LGBTQIA+ Equity Team was established in Spring 2020 to further support the LGBTQIA+ community on campus.

The Massasoit Office of Diversity & Inclusion
Diversity is an embedded part of Massasoit Community College’s Mission, Values and Goals. We are rich in diversity — gender, race, ethnicity, sexual orientation, ability, socioeconomic status, and more. The mission of the Office of Diversity and Inclusion is to build and support a culturally competent community where all students, faculty, staff, and visitors are welcomed, respected, and valued.

For questions, comments, or more information about the Office of Diversity & Inclusion please contact Yolanda Dennis, Chief Diversity Officer at: ydennis@massasoit.mass.edu.

The Dean of Students Office
Student care is the top priority of Massasoit‘s Dean of Students office. The Dean of Student’s office is here to assist students with information and referrals to campus resources. We strive to help students in the resolution of problems or concerns, and promote initiatives that address students’ care, needs, and success. We also serve as a resource for families, faculty, and staff in supporting student success at Massasoit.

For questions, or more information regarding services and resources please contact Kristine Bohmer at kfortinib@massasoit.mass.edu.

The Preferred Name Taskforce
Members of the Massasoit community should feel empowered to be called by a preferred/chosen first name. By allowing individuals to use a preferred/chosen first name, the College hopes to provide an inclusive, safe, and nondiscriminatory educational experience. Reasons for name changes may include transgender or gender nonconforming identities, international members or other members who wish to adopt an English language name, individuals known by names that are different from their legal names, or individuals who have popular names who wish to use a different one. Equally important, no student, faculty, or staff member should feel pressure to take on an Anglicized/Americanized first name for acceptance or the convenience of others.

For more information regarding the Preferred Name Taskforce, please contact Yolanda Dennis at  ydennis@massasoit.mass.edu.
