Help Plan the College's Future

Each and every College employee’s views are vital to the success of the College as a whole. As in any strong organization, the work of each person supports the work of another. Similarly, the thoughts and support of each employee are important as we continue to grow and evolve to meet the changing needs of our diverse community.

The Plan & Planning Work Group is currently working to energize and effectively tap the thinking and information resources of the College, including our people. Two major areas of emphasis are inclusiveness/communication and embracing the future. As a preparation for further and future discussions, we encourage you to think over these questions. Roundtable sessions will be held at each College location over the next few weeks to discuss question 3 in particular. Your thoughts will be collected and considered for current and future needs and improvements.

TE@M Students Participate in Service Learning

A group of MCC TE@M students recently completed a service learning project at the Open Door Mission. The students developed, prepared and implemented a glove project for children living at the shelter. The children used their creative talents to paint a pair of gloves. The children were also able to color, make a turkey craft and connect with the future teachers of the TE@M program.

“It was wonderful to see the artistic abilities and ownership the children took in creating their gloves,” said Carri Dyer, adjunct instructor. More information on MCC's TE@M program is available online
