Part-time contract pay dates for 2014–15
As the Fall quarter approaches, questions often arise regarding pay dates for part-time contracts throughout the coming year.
Work schedule guidelines
Over the past year, MCC has been striving to ensure that adjuncts and part-time non-exempt (hourly) staff adhere to the College's operating guidelines governing the hiring and use of part-time temporary employees. With the start of the new school year just a few weeks away, we would like to remind everyone to be mindful of these guidelines as schedules are prepared.
Gold medal to MCC’s SkillsUSA Teamworks team
“I’m going to Kansas City; Kansas City here I come!” These are the refrains from an old, old song and were the focus of 24 MCC students during the last week in June. MCC instructors/advisors and industry partners attended the SkillsUSA National Leadership and Skills Conference held in Kansas City. They were among the 15,000 folks from around the country who converged on Kansas City to participate in the 50th annual conference.
Vital functions of the academic advising profession
A common misconception about academic advisors at MCC is that registration is their primary function. It is true, at times the job does allow the opportunity to register students for courses designed to enhance their knowledge, increase their skill level, open their minds, and take them on a path of discovery. It is equally true registration is a very small part of what the advisors do on a daily basis.
Do you have a great idea that could make a difference in the classroom? The MCC Grants office will hold a learning session on Aug. 8 from 10:30 a.m. to noon in FOC 21 101 for staff and faculty interested in learning more about the MCC Foundation Inspiring Innovation Mini-Grant program.
