Black Lives Matter: The U.S. Journey Towards Justice and Healing

A Four-Day, Virtual Event

WITH OUR CONDEMNATION of the senseless murder of George Floyd as our catalyst, our virtual series will focus on the history of the harassment, profiling, and brutalization of our black citizens by the hands of community policing and the criminal justice system. We will explore steps that might be taken to reverse this systemic racism, help those who have been victimized by it, and heal as a nation and a community.

This forum is being presented in collaboration North Shore Community College, Office of Student Engagement and with Salem State University. ssu logo

 Danvers Mobile Market with curbside pickup

We had more than 50 participants at the October 8th Danvers Mobile Market! All food was picked up curbside with all recipients and workers masked.

In addition to a bag of dry goods that included pasta, cereal, and beans, each participant received a loaf of fresh bread and a box of perishables containing 12 lbs. fresh fruit and vegetables, 5 lbs. of dairy, 1 gallon of milk, 4.5 lbs. of fully cooked meat and 2 lbs. of eggs.

Grateful thanks to our community partner, The Open Door, for helping us provide the food for the mobile market and also to their outstanding associates who packed up the food and loaded it in the cars.

And special thanks to Amanda Dooling, Director of Student Engagement and Brianne Duff, Coordinator of Health Education, for organizing the event and making sure things ran smoothly.

For information on the next mobile market (open only to NSCC students, faculty and staff) go to

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...
An ally is someone who makes the commitment and effort to recognize their privilege (based on gender, class, race, sexual identity, etc.) and work in solidarity with oppressed groups in the struggle for justice. Allies commit to reducing their own complicity or collusion in oppression of those groups and invest in strengthening their own knowledge and awareness of oppression. Allies understand that it is in their own interest to end all forms of oppression, even those from which they may benefit in concrete ways. 

--Diane Read for the Equality & Equity Project,


SENSE Survey

This fall, NSCC will be participating in the Survey of Entering Student Engagement (SENSE), a national survey of institutional practices and student behaviors during the earliest weeks of college. SENSE is an initiative of the Center for Community College Student Engagement at The University of Texas at Austin. SENSE results will help us better understand the entering student experience.

This online survey will be administered to all students who are new to NSCC (both new and transfer) between the fourth and seventh class weeks of the fall academic term. Emails announcing the survey and inviting participation will be sent directly to students on Tuesday, September 29th.  The survey will close on Friday, October 23rd.  The results will be provided to NSCC in the spring of 2021.

If you are an instructor who teaches or are staff who interact with entering students, please encourage your students to complete SENSE.
