Program Description

  Media - Montgomery College

Montgomery College Television creates videos for Montgomery College educational cable channels, website, and social media. Funds are used for staff, equipment, operating expenses, and training student interns using hands on, real-life production techniques and facilities. Videos educate, inform, and support student success (i.e. closing the achievement gap, dual enrollment, retention, completion, transfer, and academic excellence). MCTV produces videos in Spanish, Amharic, Vietnamese, French, and Korean, and provides outreach to targeted underserved populations, engaging first-generation college students, non-native English speakers, immigrants, veterans, single parents, and those who are food insecure. Videos explore careers, economic development, and workforce preparedness. Additional funds are provided through the Montgomery College operating budget.

1  In FY21, original first-run and student-assisted programming declined due to reduction of in-person events (including sports), and faculty and students not having access to facilities. Also, short-form programming took priority over long-form. However, we were able to acquire more programming than we normally would outside of the pandemic.
2  In FY21, student-assisted hours of original programs declined due to both the pandemic's impact on in-person events, as well as the need for short-form promos and PSAs.
