Long-Term Planning

In November 2021, the MCC Board of Trustees adopted MCC Reimagined, the College's 2022-2031 strategic plan.

The development of MCC Reimagined was spearheaded by EPMP-IE, who gathered insight from over 38,000 unique expressions collected through thirty-one employee charrettes, forty-seven internal and external stakeholder meetings, thirty-six individual interviews and two comprehensive surveys.

Mid-Term Planning

The strategic plan is complimented by the MCC Reimagined Playbook, which is comprised of three-year campus and service area plans that specify deliverables for how the College will progress on the strategic plan.

Each goal featured in a campus or service area plan directly supports an overarching goal featured in the strategic plan. The playbook will be available for viewing summer 2022.

Short-Term Planning

Campus and service area plans are operationalized through annual Institutional Effectiveness Plans (IEPs).

IEPs are completed by over sixty key planning unit managers across the College and feature specific, short-term (one year or less) goals that support the campus and service area plans and the overarching strategic plan.
