Service-Learning at MCC

We strive to make a difference through the outreach of our students, whether our students are:

  • Serving through their class (in-course module)
  • Building their own class to serve (independent-module)
  • Serving through one of our many community partner organizations (service sites)

We work to ensure that our department makes a difference, even if it is only to one person.
