Mission - Vision - Purpose

Metropolitan Community College is dedicated to serving the educational needs of the community. The college's programs are intended to help students understand themselves, the society of which they are a part and the universe in which they live.

At the same time, MCC provides opportunities for students to develop occupational skills. Faculty and administrators cooperate to create an environment that stimulates intellectual growth and nurtures academic freedom for students and instructors alike. The programs offered are intended to encourage lifelong learning.

MCC employees are committed to providing equal opportunity for all persons regardless of age, creed, race or gender.

As Metropolitan Community College (MCC) embarked on a journey to develop its next strategic plan, MCC Reimagined, it became apparent that the College needed to refresh its mission and vision statements to more directly reflect its growing commitment to diversity, equity, and inclusion. The revised vision and mission statements, shown below, remove any doubt that MCC is a place for all to call home.

MCC's Mission

Preparing students, serving communities, creating opportunities for all.


In order to accomplish this mission, the Board of Trustees has empowered the chancellor, as executive officer, to implement its policies. The chancellor, with the other officers of the district, will provide leadership in the implementation of the mission and goals of the district.
