MCC is poised to meet the needs of the community through changes
to three departments: Business & Training Services (BTS),
Continuing Education and the Office of Public Affairs.
Formerly Corporate Education & Training, the Business
& Training Services Division provides career skills
training for businesses, organizations and individuals. Collaborative
partnerships are at the heart of the division. Partnerships with
Goodwill, the Omaha Housing Authority and other organizations help MCC
train individuals for the jobs employers need. BTS also works with
businesses to build and facilitate affordable, customized workshops
and training programs on site at the business location, online or at
any MCC location. Specific training areas include business
management, customer service, interpersonal skills, information
technology and leadership development.

Continuing Education provides individuals of all
ages a variety of learning opportunities. Noncredit classes help
students build computer skills, learn a language, repair a house or
write a résumé. Other classes provide personal
enrichment, like learning to dance, trying watercolor painting or
improving mental and physical health. MCC offers half-price tuition
to individuals ages 62 and above for most classes. For younger
learners, the College 4 Kids program offers summer classes for 3- to
11-year-olds, while College 4 Teens offers classes for teenagers.
To better meet the needs of the community, Continuing Education
now offers a full spectrum of online courses via Education to Go. The
six- to eight-week courses are taken entirely over the Internet,
giving students the flexibility to study around their schedule.
Languages such as French, Japanese and Italian are popular

The new Office of Public Affairs serves as a
liaison among the College, the media and the general public and works
to build awareness of and pride in MCC and its people, programs,
research, teaching and events. Public Affairs reaches out to
individuals ages three and up as MCC promotes education from College
4 Kids through lifelong learning initiatives.
Through the areas of Marketing and Public Relations and Community
Affairs and Outreach, Public Affairs works to foster open and honest
communication with MCC's key internal and external stakeholders and
help MCC forge mutually beneficial relationships with individuals and
organizations vital to growth and development.
