Job Description:

Dr. Alice Holloway Young has had a profound impact on education in Rochester and Monroe County for over fifty years. As a founding trustee of Monroe Community College, and as its chair from 1978 to 1998, she shaped the direction of the college and provided leadership that saw MCC become the premier institution it is today. As an African-American educator in the Rochester City Schools for four decades, Dr. Young was a pioneer. She was among the first African-American teachers, and the first African-American to hold the titles of Reading Specialist, Vice Principal, and Principal. When Dr. Young retired in 1985, she held the position of supervising director of elementary instruction. Dr. Young is an integral member of the MCC Community. The Alice Holloway Young Commons, the student residence halls, have been named in her honor. Dr. Young's impact on the community has been recognized by the NYS Senate as a Woman of Distinction.

The Dr. Alice Holloway Young Diversity Internship Program (AHYDIP) is a competitive, professional-level program to recruit and train Faculty and Professional Staff from historically underrepresented ethnic groups. The AHYDIP promotes diversity, equity, and inclusion at Monroe Community College.
