You are joining us as we embark upon our 70th anniversary. Founded in 1945 as a technical school for returning veterans, today MCC offers more than 60 degree and certificate programs. We promote learning both inside and outside the classroom. As our mission states, "we are a dynamic, student-centered, and accessible community college that promotes and fosters the intellectual, cultural, and economic vibrancy of our region."
There's a reason that "community" is our middle name. Annually, our students contribute more than 50,000 service hours through service-learning, internships, practica and clinical placements at community agencies, businesses, hospitals and schools. We even have a presence on Elm Street at MCC Downtown, where prospective students, current students and the public can stop by for workshops, book groups or to learn more about the college.
We've also created a real sense of community on campus, where more than 30 student clubs and organizations are just waiting for you to get involved. Stop by the Club Fair — held at the beginning of both the fall and spring semesters — and join a club that interests you.
Thank you for choosing Manchester Community College to pursue your educational goals and aspirations. I look forward to meeting you on campus.
Dr. Susan D. Huard President of Manchester Community College
