Pearls of Wisdom

For someone's 30th anniversary, the appropriate gift is pearls. To prepare for our 30th anniversary next year, we will be launching the blog "Pearls of Wisdom" in which members of MDEC will share best practices. We will also be launching a Featured Teacher blog that will highlight the work of MDEC members.

Upcoming Events

Our upcoming events calendar will not only list MDEC and other events of interest to our members, but will also include deadlines for MDEC business.


Dr. Vincent Tinto, author of Leaving College: Rethinking the Causes and Cures of Student Attrition and Completing College: Rethinking Student Action will be the Friday keynote speaker at the 2015 MDEC Conference.
