At MCC students that are motivated to put their time and energy into leading on campus and in their community have multiple opportunities to explore.
Community Engagement activities
MCC's Community Engagement office supports student community engagement learning opportunities. Community partners may submit community engagement proposals here. Proposals will be judged on alignment with MCC’s mission, student impact, learning outcomes, project scope, organizational commitment and the overall quality of the application. Applications that meet MCC Community Based Education requirements will be forwarded to academic deans for review. Implementation is contingent on gaining a faculty champion who is able to incorporate the project into their course curriculum within the project timeline. Community Engagement staff will notify you of your project’s status and next steps after your project has been reviewed.
