Community Roundtable

The Community Roundtable meets quarterly and serves two functions:

  • Provides a regular forum to bring together representatives of major civic institutions in Mesa to enable greater cooperation on citywide issues.
  • Community Roundtable holds public forums. These public forums are designed to promote discussion of public policy, to bring together fragmented efforts to deal with particular issues, and to give ordinary citizens access to institutional leaders.


In addition to classes Mesa Community College offers a multitude of experiences to enhance life-long learning. Please join us for some of the hundreds of events we host for our community:

  • Live performances and presentations are hosted in the Performing Arts Center, the MCC Theatre, the Art Gallery and on our campuses. Additional information is available at
  • Self-led Art Walks feature more than 30 intriguing pieces created by students, faculty and celebrated artists.
  • Stop and smell roses blooming on one of the nearly 9,000 bushes in the largest rose garden in the southwest.
  • Explore the cienega at MCC's Red Mountain campus to learn about the native endangered species it helps restore or conserve.
