Fostering Positive Change

2015 Report to Our Community

Shouan Pan, Ph.D.

For more than 50 years, MCC has been dedicated to student success, and we have an obligation to hold fast to the best of our past and move swiftly to the best of the future.

It starts with a resolute commitment to serve students, the community and businesses of Mesa and the East Valley for the next 50 years. This is the perfect moment for all of us to rededicate ourselves to even greater accomplishments for the future.

I call this rededication to our purpose Building an Exceptional College, measured by student outcomes and community impact. Here in MCC’s Report to Our Community you will find examples of this effort, an endeavor that is ongoing, far-reaching, and designed to perpetuate itself for the good of our students and communities long into the future.

This is our moment in time. A pause after 50 years of dedicated service to say thank you, to relive our successes, and plan for many more.
