BCCC Leads Movement for Creation of

a STEM Collegiate Conference in Maryland

 

 

Faculty from the BCCC Science and Math departments attended the 24th annual Association of Faculties for the Advancement of Community College Teaching (AFACCT) Conference at Prince George*s Community College in Largo Jan. 10. The keynote speaker was Professor J角 Hon Vance who electrified the audience with his energetic exhortation to teach with passion.

 

BCCC faculty are leading the move to have a STEM conference in Maryland. The rationale for a state conference for STEM disciplines is that many community college STEM faculty are conducting undergraduate research, and both faculty and students need a place to present their work and gain feedback from faculty at other community colleges. Such input would be extremely valuable, especially for students from smaller community colleges.

 


 

Refugee Assistance Program Celebrates New Partnerships

 

 

Providing English as a Second Language services for refugees and asylees throughout Baltimore City and Maryland, the BCCC Refugee Assistance Program works with community partners as a strategy for creating awareness, cost-effectiveness, and accessible education to potential students.

 

In 2013, the program established a solid partnership with the Most Precious Blood (Catholic) parish in Northeast Baltimore to make ESL classes easily accessible for older Bhutanese refugees living in the Frankford Community. And since the beginning of the New Year, the program has initiated conversations with Our Lady of Victory parish in Catonsville to provide similar services to the large population of Burmese refugees residing in that community.

 

Congratulations to everyone in the Refugee Assistance Program!

Public Safety Parking Reminders

Spring 2014 Parking Tags and IDs Available

Faculty and staff can purchase Spring 2014 parking tags from the ID Booth in the Main Building. All employees who signed up for pre-tax parking through payroll deduction can pick up parking hangtags from the ID booth or from Tyra Lambert, Administrative Assistant, Public Safety. Pre-tax parking is no longer available during this fiscal year.

Public Safety will be enforcing parking regulations in ALL lots. All faculty and staff who are parking on the main campus or west pavilion must have a valid parking hangtag. 

♂Liberty Campus Parking

Due to limited parking on the main campus, and a high demand for parking by our students, the Department of Public Safety reminds faculty and staff the following:

Parking Lot D, located behind the Main Building is designated for student parking ONLY. Faculty and staff are NOT authorized to park in this lot. Violators will be ticketed.

Parking Lot E, located behind the Fine Arts Wing and adjacent to Harper Hall is designated for faculty and staff parking. Faculty and staff cannot park anywhere else on the main campus 每 not in student parking or on the grass.  

Effective immediately, Public Safety will begin enforcing parking permit violations. So, be sure to park your vehicle in the designated parking lot which corresponds with your parking hangtag. Vehicles displaying a valid handicapped parking permit or Maryland handicapped registration may park in any marked handicapped space. 

After 4 p.m., all lots are open parking for students, faculty and staff. Persons parking without regard to campus parking regulations will be subject to a fine. Thank you for your cooperation.

What*s in Store for Our Next Virtual Campus?

The College relies heavily on Blackboard as our learning management system (LMS). We have a complete integration between Blackboard and our Student Information System, and every course we offer has a presence on our LMS. Blackboard has served as the BCCC LMS for 13 years 每 it is now time to reassess its value to the College and determine whether we should continue to use it or look to use another LMS that may be less costly.

 

The Due Diligence Committee has spent the past four months researching various learning management systems and will soon present a proposal to the IT Committee about the best choice of a next learning management system, be it Blackboard or a new option.

 

If you would like to find more on the progress of the committee, contact
Dr. Diana Zilberman at
dzilberman@bccc.edu or 410-462-7719.

IT Services Alert: Watch Out for Spam Emails

 

Be cautious when checking your College email 每 spammers have the capability to title spam emails to look as if they come from BCCC. How can you tell if you have a spam email in your inbox? Look at the address 每 if it has a title relevant to the College but isn*t sent from a BCCC email account, it*s probably spam.

 

IT Services will never ask for your password, especially via email, as that is a security violation. Our standard procedure is to reset your password to your previous password or give you an initial password via phone.

Tip from ITS: Go Green 每 Just Do It!

 

As part of the College-wide effort to ※go green,§ IT Services recommends all PC and LCD monitors be shut down daily. Remembering to do small things like this can save energy, ensure security and be largely beneficial for the College community. It is not necessary for printers and scanners to be turned off, as many of the newer models feature energy-saving modes.
