Dale Griffith, MxCC 1989

Dale Griffith attended Middlesex Community College in the 1970s and 1980s while raising her children through difficult marriages and graduated with honors in 1989. On a scholarship, she earned a B.A. degree in English from Wesleyan University in 1992.

In 1994, Dale was hired by the York Correctional Institution to give writing workshops to female inmates with author Wally Lamb.

Dale also earned an M.A.L.S. in humanities/writing from Wesleyan in 2005. She became an adjunct instructor at Middlesex, then full-time member of the English Department in 2007, and served as an assistant professor.

“Middlesex changed my life. When I enrolled for the second time, my personal life was in shambles. My self-esteem was low. While Wesleyan later polished the rough edges, it was Middlesex and its wonderful teachers who helped me to find some treasure in the rubble of my life,” said Dale.
