The Board also approved salary adjustments for 15 full time faculty. These individuals completed additional graduate coursework or earned advanced degrees in their academic discipline. The action came with an approximate 4 percent pay increase.

The Week@TCC is Moving!  

It may be a Manic Monday, but look forward to a Terrific Tuesday when The Week@TCC moves to a Tuesday distribution next week. The change comes after a vote by the Marketing Communications and Web Committee that suggested employees would prefer a Tuesday delivery because it’s one less thing to read on Mondays. 

We want your feedback! Tell us what you think about The Week @ TCC

News IconHibakusha Stories: Survivors of the Atomic Bomb  

Atomic bomb survivors Toshiko Tanaka and Shigeko Sasamori share their firsthand experience of the bombing of Hiroshima on Aug. 6, 1945, and discuss the subsequent trajectories of their lives. "Hibakusha" is the Japanese word for atomic bomb survivors, who, in their advancing age, have a very limited opportunity to share their accounts. Hibakusha Stories is brought to Tulsa in part thanks to an initiative by Youth Arts New York. 

The mission Hibakusha Stories, a U.N.-affiliated NGO, is to pass the legacy of the atomic bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki to a new generation of high school and university students to empower them with the tools to build a world free of nuclear weapons.
