Hello Campus Community:
January is a time of resolutions, renewal, and reviewing your life in a whole different way. It is a time of refreshing and recharging your purpose—and there’s no better place to do that than at Becker College!
I am pleased to announce that the Colleen C. Barrett Center, located on the Worcester Campus, is open! 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
