- For several years, the students entering MMC’s HEOP program have studied the history of the program itself. This summer was also the fiftieth anniversary of the start of the war on poverty, and so it was decided that this summer the HEOP students would focus on putting MMC’s HEOP history into the larger context. Accordingly, the students followed the standard chronology of a U.S. history course, from Johnson’s declaration of a war on poverty in January 1964 to the establishment of the Office of Economic Opportunity under Sargent Shriver. The students then used MMC’s own archives to expand that chronology to include MMC’s participation in the events of the day, and its own innovations in addressing the economic barriers to a college education.

- This blog is conceived as a gift to the Class of 2018 from the students already at MMC. During Summer I 2014, 16 students took AIP 332-01, New York: A World City, which combined field trips with reading, documentaries, discussions and library work. Each student found a favorite image on a field trip, and reflected upon it using resources discovered in class or in the library. The result is a series reflecting the varied interests of MMC’s students and the support available for the diverse topics students might wish to pursue.
