Navigate Update

We are taking a break from our Weekly Workshops this week to assist with New Student Registration but will be back next week with new workshop offerings.

In the meantime, we leave you with these fun stats about our incoming class (pulled from Navigate):

42% describe themselves as Gutsy

39% describe themselves as Determined

48% describe themselves as Hardworking

53% describe themselves as Focused

We can’t wait for you to meet this incoming class!

Many thanks to the hardworking Student Support and Advising, Enrollment, and Navigate staff: over 140 students have registered for the Summer and Fall with Navigate!

Finally, the Navigate Team is sad to announce the departure of one of our inaugural team members,mustafa sidiqui Mustafa Sidiqi! While Mustafa only served as a Pathway Navigator for a short period, he was instrumental in getting this project off the ground. He brought great understanding of the student experience, spent hours exploring the deepest corners of the Navigate platform in order to bring us insight, and approached his work with a positive, can-do attitude. We will miss him!

We wish Mustafa all the best as he moves on to work at the State House and trust he will not be a stranger.

--John, Jake, and Orquidia

Murder By The Minute is on the air!

(Conceived and Directed by Matthew Woods)

Join us as we journey back in time to the 1940’s and the Golden Age of Radio, for a selection of Five-Minute Mysteries filled with mischief, mayhem, and – you guessed it – murder!   From April 18-30 we will add two new plays every other day for the college community to enjoy.  The plays are the result of the hard  work of a host of NSCC students, faculty, staff, and alumni, and are offered in a range of formats, including:

  • Audio plays (with transcripts) that capture the spirit of the golden age of radio!

  • Short films featuring a flash of film noir finesse!

  • Illustrated audio plays, each with a unique storyboard designed by a North Shore student artist!

Access is free to the NSCC community.  Simply log into, and follow the link to the Theater Based Events page!

What are you waiting for?  Log on -- and tune in -- today!

Nelson, will present a slide show and read from his book, Flight Calls: Exploring Massachusetts Through Birds,   described as "somewhere between a personal memoir, a true-life adventure, and a birder's personal journey." His essay "Funny Bird Sex" is a Pushcart Prize winner.

This event will take place on Zoom on Tuesday, April 20, 9:30-10:45 am and on Wednesday, April 21, 9:30-10:45 am.  All are welcome.  Zoom link to be provided.

Drive-Thru Grad Celebration

Date: Saturday, May 22, 2021, 11am-1pm, Danvers Campus.

Please join us as a Celebrator for the Drive-Thru Grad Celebration that will be held on the Danvers Campus on Saturday, May 22nd! We have devised a cheering section that will be socially distanced and outdoors with additional protocols (i.e. masking). As we will be holding a virtual Commencement this year, this is one of the few opportunities we will have as a community to celebrate our graduates 'in person.' You may bring immediate members of your household to join you in celebrating. However after review, we ask that you do NOT bring any pets to the celebration as this would likely complicate the event more than initially thought.

To join in the fun please sign up with this link. For any questions, please reach out to Amanda Dooling ( or Brian Falter (

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.

April Deep Dive:

According to a recent study, anti-Asian hate crimes have spiked 150 percent since the pandemic began. Learn more about the history of anti-Asian racism in the United States in this link to a recent Washington Post article.                                          

Think About This:

This is an example of white privilege: I am never asked to speak for all the people of my racial group. 

If you have any questions or comments on NSCC's Equality & Equity Project, please contact us at EqualityEquity@northshore. edu
