Strategic Plan 2025

It is an exciting time as we close out our current Strategic Plan 2015-2020 and begin to develop the next strategic plan that will lead the College through 2025. MCC has a Strategic Planning Committee comprised of constituents from across the college and the community and has engaged with CampusWorks Inc., a strategic planning consultant specializing in community colleges and other institutions of higher education. 

The strategic planning process is designed to be collaborative in nature and over the next several months the College will host events to gather input from students, employees, community members, and business leaders. Our goal for completion is May 2020. We hope you will help us by providing your input. We will post updates here throughout the process, please check back often.
