TRiO Scholars Present

GRCC Scholars Poster Presentation invitation

You won’t want to miss the GRCC Scholars Poster Presentation this Wednesday, Oct. 13! It’s always interesting to see what each student accomplished during their Summer Research Programs. Upon their return to GRCC, students make poster presentations just like professionals do at conferences.

TRiO Support Services offers several options in their Summer Research Program. Check them out on the TRiO Subject Guide. You’ll be able to pick up program literature at the Poster Presentation, as well as ask students about their experience. Plus, snacks :>

I’ll Be There For You….

Yes, it’s the refrain from the theme song from Friends, but it’s also this year’s theme for World Bullying Prevention Month. Bullying is not just a problem for K-12 school-aged children. It impacts college-aged students, and other adults. Bullying can be at the coffee shop, on the city bus, in class, at your workplace, even at church.

Librarian Mike Klawitter curated October’s book display on the 2nd floor of the Library. Check out (literally) any of the books on display – we’ve got more online!

Bullying Prevention Month display
“Bullying, cyberbullying, racism, hatred, LGBTQIA+ discrimination and homophobia are direct causes of mental health issues. Stand up against hate, racism, and discrimination.
Change the culture with diversity, equity, equality, inclusion, civility – and unity becomes our destiny.”

Stomp out Bullying!

Our Frontliner Dental Hygienists

There are few careers more “in your face” and less socially-distanced than those in the dental professions. This month we celebrate our Dental Hygienist students, grads, and faculty who have so resiliently provided dental care during these past many months.
