MMC Brings Learning Sites Together with Crossing Borders VIII

Nearly 20 years ago, when Aileen Baumgartner, director of the college program at the Bedford Hills Correctional Facility for women, and Katie LeBesco, MMC’s associate vice president for strategic initiatives and a professor of communication and media arts, discovered they both lived in Westchester, they began to meet up and talk over cups of tea and coffee. Their conversations always came back to the same question: How to draw attention to the impressive scholarly work happening in the Bedford Hills College Program, which MMC has run since 1997. Though the program was flourishing, with more than 15 courses offered each semester to students earning associate and bachelor’s degrees, many at MMC’s 71st Street campus were unaware of it. LeBesco had only recently learned of it herself.
