ICYMI (in case you missed it), 2016 was a busy year for Metropolitan Community College.
In the tradition of end-of-the-year look-backs, we chose 16 in ’16 — 16 MCC News stories that reflect the MCC mission. There’s a little something here from each campus that speaks to the College’s commitment to preparing students, serving communities and creating opportunities.
Yes, it was hard to select just 16.
MCC is proud to have been a part of many success stories this year. We know 2017 will yield many more of the same.
Our list of stories is not ranked. Instead, we’re presenting them by date. Click a title to go to the original article.
