THIS IS THE COMMUNITY'S COLLEGE
This is a critical time for community colleges to support our nation’s educational needs. Emerging as a sound investment at a time when four-year institution costs continue to rise, community colleges’ role in higher education is transitioning from just another option to the best value for a quality education. The ability to make higher education accessible to all citizens and preparing our future workforce with the right skills makes community college a wise choice for higher education today. This is why we need widespread community support for an effective solution to one of MCC’s most pressing educational needs.

OUR LABS ARE OUR FRONT DOOR
Almost every student at MCC passes through our science programs as they work toward their educational goals. The community’s future engineers, teachers, social workers, accountants, and chefs all must take at least one science lab class when starting their studies. All of these students deserve a credible place in which to learn—one that matches the quality of our faculty.
