Where the road to success begins.
Nearly 6,000 students each fall come to MCC-Penn Valley, MCC's most diverse and global campus. The campus is famous for its in-demand health career, music and strong art programs.
English as a Second Language prepares non-native English speaking students for college.
Away from class, MCC-Penn Valley students enjoy the on-campus art gallery, a work-out at the fitness center, or a Wolves basketball game - the men's and women's teams are nationally ranked year after year.
The MCC Creed is a group of values conceived and written by our students, and it speaks to the quality of life and higher education. Our common goal is that students, faculty, staff and administration leaders will strive to REACH and share each value as a community.:
Respect: We respect each other, ourselves, the college, and our community. We hold ourselves to high moral and academic principals. We demonstrate this through our actions and words.
Excellence: We challenge ourselves to set high standards and embrace life-long learning.
Accountability: We accept responsibility for our individual actions and their impact on others. We take ownership for our learning and strive to resolve matters in a peaceful way.
Community: We are part of a large and diverse society. We are engaged in building a positive college culture of involvement, collaboration and completion. We accept all members of the community.
Honor: We are honest and truthful. We give recognition to the original ideas of others and expect recognition for our individual thoughts and ideas.
As we commit to live out these values, we hope to see a change in personal and professional development.
