Two MCC professors receive Daube Award for inclusion

MANCHESTER — Manchester Community College has awarded two professors the Jonathan M. Daube Award for Inclusion and Accessibility.

Patricia Carrigan, a professor of visual fine arts, and Myrta Groeneveld, mathematics, were honored at the ceremony, which took place on Disability Awareness Day, April 5.

Daube, a former MCC president, presented the awards, which were established to honor his legacy of inclusion and accessibility.

“Pat Carrigan is one of MCC’s strongest advocates for students with disabilities,” said Gail Stanton, MCC learning disability specialist.

Groeneveld is a Massachusetts resident and math professor. She helped create a computer lab dedicated to developmental math, developed the math curriculum, and now helps train teachers to teach the summer bridge program.

“Myrta leaves no stone unturned in her quest to help students be successful,” said Joe Navarra, coordinator of disability services.

MCC Disability Services and the Institute on Disability and Community Inclusion hosted the event.
