Convocation Highlights

The following two videos showcase Convocation and were produced by our Marketing Department. A very special thank you goes out to one of our newest family members, Jake Wangner, Multimedia Graphics Designer, who hit the ground running (literally) to produce these two pieces. Welcome to the MVC family Jake!

Convocation Promotional Interviews

The following interviews showcase some of our most respected employees and were directed by Randy Clower, College Video Film Maker. Thank you Randy for all of your support, talent coordination, and endless hours in the editing suite. We greatly appreciate your help!

Need proof that MVC had the best Return Week ever? Look no further than our very own photo gallery, which represents just some of what makes MVC a “Best Place to Work” (as recognized by NISOD two years in a row!).


In case you didn’t recognize Leo and Leona, they’re actually played by two of our very own college employees (more details on that in our “Thank You Volunteers” post).


Convocation and the variety of sessions that followed on Thursday weren’t the only ways to be a fully engaged employee. There were also opportunities to pose at our selfie station and participate in social media contests. #MVCReturnWeek


Many thanks go out to our very own MVC Pioneer Faculty who were great sports during the opening acts of Convocation. In case you didn’t know…they’re experts in their subject matters and in comic routines!


The opening acts also served a great way to feature some of our very own students and programs. The music, dance, nursing, and welding were just some of the areas showcased.


For those lucky few who were awarded with MVC Participatory Budgeting Grants, the day held extra meaning. Congratulations to all of our family members who received such grants. We look forward to seeing your great ideas in action!


With the theme of MVC Campus Exploration this Return Week, employees were treated to a variety of sessions focused on getting to know our campus a little better.


Such opportunities included presentations, game-based sessions, campus tours, and much more in over 30 sessions all around campus. Such a great way to explore MVC!


The learning and fun of course wasn’t limited to just workshops. There were plenty of other opportunities to engage around campus. Go Cowboys!

In total, MVC held twenty-eight sessions throughout the week. When you see a presenter in the hallway, make sure to give them a high-five!


We also welcomed our new Vice President of Instruction, Dr. Lori Doddy, while thanking our former VPI, Dr. Ken Alfers.


In case you didn’t know it, Deans can dance. Our very own Sandy Wyche, with more than a little help from Gilda Nunez led a workshop on “Cumbia & Other Dancing from SouthTexas.”


Convocation itself got off to a great start as everyone in the audience was encouraged (nope…that’s not a typo) to utilize their cell phones while taking an live quiz. This was a great utilization of instructional technology!


Right after Convocation everyone was invited to lunch and a strategic planning workshop that helped begin this collaborative process at MVC. Stay tuned for even more strategic planning opportunities in the months to follow.
