“We live on a three-legged stool, we have to have the financial means to get our students through whether they are missing food, transportation or a home, having their taxes done or benefits evaluated and gotten. The second leg is the system of support, academic, social, and emotional. Without those services, the third leg, which is the academic in-class piece can’t stand.”
Pam Eddinger, Ph.D., President, BunkerHill Community College
