Mott Community College


Mott Community College (MCC) is located in Genesee County, in the city of Flint, Michigan. It is a two-year university offering a wide range of degree options, with both a career track and a transfer track (for those who wish to attend four-year universities later). Mott Community College has an average enrollment of over 10,000, and a 90% employment rate for their graduates.

MCC also has transfer agreements with other four-year universities in Michigan, and their credits are almost universally accepted across the nation for transfer. They also have a dual-enrollment policy with the University of Michigan – Flint Campus, and there are admissions officers from this and several other schools with offices right on the campus.


Academics

Class sizes are kept small at Mott, with classes often having no more than 20 or 25 students. Thus, the instructors are afforded the opportunity for more one-on one time with students. There are more than 100 degree options to choose from, and many of the instructors hold Ph.D's in their various fields. Recently, MCC was recognized as one of the top ten community colleges in the country by the Aspen Institute.

Their Mission Statement neatly sums up their commitment to academic excellence: "The mission of Mott Community College is to provide high quality, accessible and affordable educational opportunities and services—including programs focused on university transfer, technical and lifelong learning, as well as workforce and economic development—that promote student success, individual development, and improve the overall quality of life in a multicultural community."


Athletics

The athletic program at Mott has been widely recognized as one of the best community college athletic programs in the country. The Men's Basketball team at Mott has won several national championships, and is consistently ranked in the top 10 in the country. There are a wide variety of other athletic programs offered as well, including baseball, cross-country, golf, softball, and volleyball.


Technology

MCC has made continual investments to keep their students at the cutting edge of technology. n 1996 MCC began development of the Regional Technology Center (RTC), a center for high-technology education built on the site of the old St. Joseph Hospital, adjacent to the main campus. The $40-million facility opened in September 2002 and drew more than 1,300 students its first semester. In addition, thousands of area residents have attended community events at the new RTC.

At the same time, Mott College opened its Visual Arts & Design Center, offering a first quality facility for the fine arts and graphic design. Three community technology centers were also established in Flint to help bridge the "digital divide." In 2001, MCC expanded to Livingston County, opening a Michigan Technical Education Center in Howell.

In 2002, MCC also opened a new center in Clio to serve students in the northern part of Genesee County. This center was so successful (enrollment rose from 400 to 1,100 students in the first few years) that a new larger facility was opened in January 2007.

The year 2010 saw the opening of a Media Arts & Entertainment Technology Center, providing professional-quality technical training for a wide variety of media-related careers.
