All of our college planning and program review efforts exist to help us improve in order to better serve our students and community. Through strategic planning, program review, and operational planning efforts, we align college work with our wildly important goals, engage in cycles of informed improvement, and collaborate together to ensure the continued vibrancy and health of our college.
One of MCC’s Core Values is Continuous Improvement. To live this value, we must engage in cycles that assess where we are, set goals for where we want to be, and take evidence-based action to reach those goals. The 4-year department/program review cycle is an integral part of planning at MCC and is focused on growth and improvement to better serve our students, community, and each other. Individual program reviews will be completed every 4 years, unless a different schedule is adopted to accommodate an external program accreditation cycle.
