Moraine Valley Community College’s vice president of Student Development, Dr. Normah Salleh-Barone, was recently appointed to the Housing Authority of Cook County Board of Commissioners. She will serve a five-year term as a commissioner on the board.

Salleh-Barone has long been an advocate for addressing concerns related to the need for decent, affordable housing.

“When I was Moraine Valley’s director of Multicultural Student Affairs in the early 2000s, I first learned about one of our student leader’s experience with housing insecurity. I worked with my colleagues at the college to research what resources were available for our homeless students,” she said.

Salleh-Barone has served as the college’s vice president of Student Development since 2010.

“Over the past 10 years, I began to realize the number of students who self-report as being homeless or who have housing insecurity has become too frequent,” she said. Salleh-Barone believes her position on the board will give her the opportunity to provide the perspective of a higher education administrator.

She was excited when she learned of her appointment and is eager to make a meaningful contribution.

“I hope to expand and extend my services on behalf of Moraine Valley. I am proud to represent an institution that is so highly respected, where our students always come first. And we have to remember the communities where our students live. By serving as one of the board’s commissioners, I will be able to continue to support our students and their families who live in this county,” Salleh-Barone said.

We're offering classes in three formats: online, virtual and hybrid.

An online course is a mostly asynchronous learning experience (no set meeting dates and times) using Canvas (Moraine Valley’s learning management system) and/or other technology via the internet to deliver content, facilitate communication, collect student work and assess student performance. Any components with set days and times, if any, are optional.

Virtual classes have scheduled, real-time, online sessions at specific dates and times. A virtual class is a blend of synchronous and asynchronous (scheduled dates and times as well as learning that takes place on our own) online learning experiences using Canvas (Moraine Valley’s learning management system), real-time video, and other technology via the internet to deliver content, facilitate communication, collect student work and assess student performance. Scheduled real-time virtual class meetings require participation/attendance. If a student is registered for a virtual class, students are expected to attend any synchronous (scheduled dates and times) components added by the instructor, which must occur during the regularly scheduled class time. Students will “attend” online via web conferencing tools, and these virtual meetings will be set up and scheduled by the instructor.

A hybrid course is a blend of mostly asynchronous online learning experiences (NO set online meeting dates and times) and face-to-face class sessions. Hybrid courses have learning activities that must be completed via Canvas (Moraine Valley’s learning management system) or other technology, as well as class sessions that require on-campus or other in-person attendance, such as labs and clinicals. If a student is registered for a hybrid class, the class session offered will be in person on campus or other locations depending on the needs of the program. These in-person meetings must occur during the scheduled in-person class time.
