The Diversity Leadership Council (DLC) is still collecting pictures and quotes for its annual Faces of NSCC video, which highlights students, staff, faculty, and events at the College. Faces of NSCC 2020 will be shown at various campus and outreach events. “Celebrating Diversity and Inclusion in NSCC’s Community”.
With most learning and working now taking place remotely, a whole new category of photo opportunities has opened up. Please take and send pictures of students, staff, faculty working from home - teaching, learning, working. Photo suggestions: Helping your children do their schoolwork online; your unusual, hastily created "office" space; holding a sign with words of encouragement and support for the NSCC community; serious photos; fun photos, etc. Be creative!
Students' music is encouraged and welcomed! Email me your link!
There is a question on the release form for those who would like to provide a quote, which is optional. People may have their picture taken with or without including a quote.
Please direct any questions, send photos, student release forms and music to:
Anne Tabet at firstname.lastname@example.org. Deadline to submit is Friday, May 1.
Have fun taking pictures!
