Today we start the semester with the most courses on campus since Spring 2020!
As you come to campus, please make sure you bring:
- your new vertical ID so greeters can waive you through the vax verification process fast (If you have
not received your Employee Badge, please contact Katelyn Considine in Human Resources at email@example.com.)
- your vaccination card or other record of vaccination if you do not have your ID
- your mask (and wear it)
- your patience and build in some extra time for arrival: the process for greeting people and checking their verification is new and we will learn and adjust as needed.
As a reminder, anyone arriving on either campus will need to enter through one of five building entrances:
- Danvers Berry Building 1st Floor Main Entrance
- Danvers Health Professions and Student Services Building 2nd Floor Main Entrance
- Danvers Math and Science Building 1st Floor Lot 7 Entrance
- Lynn East Main Entrance
- Lynn West Main Entrance
For more information and for photos/maps of the entrances, click here.
Registration is now open to join the 2022 North Shore Diversity Catalog!
The North Shore Diversity Catalog is a tool to help businesses share information about the services they provide or the products they offer. It also helps cities and towns in the region to identify the diverse array of business owners so that they can better connect them with opportunities for municipal procurement (when cities and towns purchase items or services). The catalog will be published on local city websites, promoted by partner municipalities, and shared with local Chambers of Commerce, Main Streets organizations, and other community groups.
To register for the 2022 Diversity Catalog, fill out the form in its entirety here: https://tinyurl.com/
Registration is open until February 1, 2022. Registrations after February 1, 2022, will be allowed, however entry into the catalog for those late registrants may be delayed. Previously listed businesses from the 2021 Catalog must also visit the registration link to confirm their business’ information or update it if necessary.
To participate in the Catalog, a business must meet two criteria:
(1) Be located within the greater North Shore region (i.e. Beverly, Danvers, Lynn, Marblehead, Nahant, Peabody, Salem, and Swampscott), and
(2) Have at least 51% of the ownership team in at least one of the following categories: Immigrant, Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgendered (LGBTQIA), Black/African American, Hispanic or Latino (Central/South American or Caribbean), American Indian/Alaskan Native, Asian, Native Hawaiian/Other Pacific Islander, Person/People with a (dis)ability, Service-Disabled Veteran, Veteran, and/or Woman/Women.

Welcome to the
Equality & Equity Project
As part of our commitment to Anti-Racism, Diversity & Inclusion, the Equality & Equity Project will provide historical and present-day information about the contributions, challenges, culture, and daily lives of the many vital groups that make up our NSCC community, and the larger world.
We invite you to visit often, reflect on what you see and read, discuss it with others and, hopefully, expand your knowledge base, appreciation, and understanding of groups beyond your own.
Think about this:
This is an example of heterosexual (straight) privilege: People don't ask why I made my choice to be public about my sexual orientation.
If you have any questions or comments on NSCC's Equality & Equity Project, please contact us at EqualityEquity@northshore.
