We were excited to host this discussion today about the causes of the Syrian refugee crisis and the needs of Syrian refugees in the United States. This event was organized by the MVCC Arab Student Union.
Moraine Valley faculty and staff who attended the Women’s March in Chicago discuss their experiences and reasons for marching. Learn about the history of women marching for their rights from Merri Fefles, associate professor of History and Political Science; gain an understanding of how the Women’s March became a platform for many issues from Sustainability manager Stephenie Presseller; and see the march through the photo lens of Maura Vizza, communications specialist in Marketing and Communications. This event is part of the Women’s History Month programming.
On this date 50 years ago, district residents approved a referendum to create Moraine Valley Community College. This effort was spearheaded by the Oak Lawn Rotary. Moraine Valley will thank the Rotary for its efforts long ago by presenting the current members with a thank-you banner signed by faculty, staff and students (from the MVCC Public Relations Department).
MVCC Library would like to congratulate our very own Delphine Lytell on her nomination for Adjunct Professor of the Year! Delphine has dedicated almost two decades of service to our library, our students, and her profession. You may have been one of her students, as she is an “expert of all trades.” She has taught a myriad of classes including College 101, Library Information sessions, and even Psych. and History classes. Outside of the classroom she continues helping students who stop by the Reference Desk in the library. Her contributions to the college have been many from leading grant proposals to, most recently, working on our digital archives project for MVCC’s 50th Anniversary. She also continues to contribute to her profession by providing guidance to new (and seasoned) librarians who begin their journeys at MVCC.
We will find out who the college selects for Adjunct Professor of the Year later this spring, but in the meantime, please join me in congratulating Delphine on her nomination!

A SpeakOut and Dialog on Higher Education.

This event was held December 1, 2016
Starting Monday Nov 14 – Nov. 22 the library will be collecting food in exchange for student library fines for Elsie’s Food Pantry. One food item= one fine.
In an effort to help out the food pantry at a particularly difficult time, we also encourage campus staff and faculty to contribute non-perishable food items or make a monetary donation to help in the effort. All food and monetary donations are accepted at the library circulation desk. We’d like to raise at least $300.00 this year for the pantry along with the food donations, even $1 will help them in their effort to supply food for hungry families.
We look forward to seeing all of you in the library and hope that you will help us help families in need.
