Hello Campus Community:
Weather in New England can always be unpredictable, but we are only weeks away from spring time! I hope you are enjoying Spring Semester, and taking advantage of all that Becker has to offer.
In January we opened the new Colleen C. Barrett Center on the Worcester Campus. I was thrilled that so many students and faculty attended the Center’s Open House, which was featured in this wonderful article in the Worcester Telegram & Gazette: Becker College shows off new digs for game designers.
This spectacular renovation of an historic building is dedicated to your academic study. It is the new home of the Massachusetts Digital Games Institute (Mass DiGI), Mass DiGI’s New Ventures Center, Game and Live Studio, an Augmented Reality/Virtual Reality Lab, the Yunus Social Business Centre, and Becker’s Esports Club. In addition to faculty offices and meeting rooms, you also have 24/7 technology access at the Center.
The College’s work on our strategic plan continues. This is a community-wide effort to reflect on our strengths and what makes Becker unique, for the purpose of devising a roadmap for enhancing student success, enrollment, and institutional brand—now, and in the future. Once complete, this three-year strategic plan will demonstrate the dedicated commitment, collective wisdom, and compelling vision that drives the campus community to continually enhance our achievement and excellence, to ensure Becker presents a culture of innovation that encourages creative and divergent thinking, and provides a supportive and inclusive learning community that prepares graduates for their first, to last, careers.
This time of year means the campus atmosphere is charged with an electric sense of opportunity and ambition. (Seniors, you are in the home stretch!) I hope that you tap into this energy as you focus on your pursuits, whatever they may be.
I look forward to talking with you at an athletic event, campus activity, or just walking around the campuses. I am also available to answer your questions, concerns, and hear your ideas during my office hours.
Best of luck in all your endeavors!
Nancy P. Crimmin, Ed.D.
President, Becker College
