Circles of Support

Student thinking in class.MCCC offers a Circles of Support program for students in diverse groups. The circles are welcoming, supportive spaces to share experiences and tackle questions among peers. Circles are formed around a common thread, from the unique issues faced by students from different cultures to the concerns of students who are single parents or first-generation college students. These small discussion groups foster honest and open communication, help students broaden their social and professional networks, encourage discussion with fellow students that participants might not otherwise interact with on a regular basis and build connections and collaboration.
