Campus Engagement Sessions

On March 8 and 9, 2023, Massasoit hosted two engagement sessions on the Brockton campus for our Transformation Through Renovation Project.  Well over 100 students and dozens of faculty and staff participated in the sessions led by our project design teams. We’re grateful to have had so many people provide input into the project and play an active role in helping us shape Massasoit’s future. By engaging with students, faculty, and staff, the design team can truly build academic spaces conducive to the success of our programs, students, and community. Thank you to all for participating!
