President Daniel AsquinoA message from the PRESIDENT

Mount Wachusett Community College is building for the future through renovations to our existing Haley Academic Center and construction of a new, 44,000-square-foot STEM (science, technology, engineering, and math) wing, as well as through the success of our students who are achieving their career aspirations. 

In this issue, you’ll read about MWCC alumni who have gone on to build exciting careers in their fields, including Akasha Hodge, a talented digital designer now working at Google, and Kevin Berg, executive vice president of production for CBS Network Entertainment Group, who is bringing award-winning television programs to audiences across the U.S. and around the world. You’ll also learn about students like Marciel Vargas, who is redirecting her career path through free workforce training opportunities in advanced manufacturing.

We’re excited to announce several new academic programs, including a Liberal Arts associate degree concentration in Civic Engagement and Community Leadership, an academic certificate in Nonprofit Management, and a flexible Interdisciplinary Studies program. In this issue, you’ll also hear from professors in our Health Information Management program, and find advice on discovering career interests, applying for college, and financial aid.

I hope these articles inspire you to imagine building your future with MWCC, whether it’s through a short-term certificate, an associate degree, or one of our many noncredit classes. Our goal is to be part of our students’ successes in building their futures though high quality education right in our own community. I invite you to visit our campuses and learn more about how we can be a partner in your success!

To your future endeavors,

Daniel M. Asquino, Ph.D.
