During his visit, the Commissioner toured the campus and viewed the extensive art collections. He met with President Wall and his Cabinet to discuss the Vision Project and other state initiatives as well as Massasoit’s strong STEM programming, new math initiatives, and retention.

The Commissioner joined the Board of Trustees meeting for an interactive discussion about closing achievement gaps, retention, the challenge of remediation, and alumni engagement. He spoke of the challenge we all face as public higher education institutions to leverage our strength, show legislators and our communities a return on their investment, and to use efficient practices. The Commissioner’s visit is part of a series of campus visits designed to improve communication and collaboration between state officials and campus leaders.
