TDC Celebrates 5th Anniversary
In November, The Democracy Commitment celebrated its fifth anniversary with an event at The New York Times. Over 70 guests were in attendance, including community college presidents, TDC’s steering committee, TDC faculty and students, and many other partners and supporters. The event featured remarks from Kathleen O’Connell (NYT), George Mehaffy (AASCU), Verdis Robinson (TDC), Brian Murphy (De Anza College), William “Bro” Adams (NEH), and NYT Columnist Ron Lieber, in addition to a panel from five TDC campuses and panel of TDC students. At the beginning of the celebration, it was announced that Verdis Robinson, TDC’s Interim National Manager, would be transitioning to a permanent role as TDC’s National Director in January 2017. Congratulations, Verdis!
