The 47th Commencement Ceremony at Roxbury Community College (RCC) was held on Friday, May 12, 2023. Held during the College’s 50th anniversary year, the ceremony was held during RCC’s first-ever, three-day homecoming celebration.
The Roxbury Community College (RCC) Community mourns the passing of Melvin H. King, educator, youth worker, social activist, community organizer and developer, elected politician, and author. One of RCC’s celebrated Pioneers, Mr. King’s tireless advocacy for Boston residents shaped the city we know today; including the establishment and growth of RCC.
RCC is committed to ensuring that every student who matriculates can feel successful. RCC’s SUCCESS (Supporting Urgent Community College Equity Through Student Services) Program is part of the Commonwealth’s overall SUCCESS initiative to support underserved and historically underrepresented students. Through the SUCCESS Program, RCC brought in Dropout Academy founder and CEO Kurt Faustin to run a six-week mental health and emotional wellness program at RCC.
