Mesa Community College is dedicated to offering and supporting research experiences and opportunities to its students and faculty. Faculty at MCC are encouraged and supported by professional growth and grant opportunities to engage in scholarship and original research. The college faculty engages students in short-term research designed as in-class, semester projects, ongoing and long-term research projects, and interdisciplinary research projects.

The Honors Program, Service Learning Program and professional student organizations like Phi Theta Kappa and Psi Beta support student involvement in the research experience. The Red Mountain campus offers an intimate college environment with advanced research opportunities for motivated students and faculty.

Faculty: engage yourself and your students in original research, presentations and publications.

Students: contribute to the body of academic knowledge as you participate in original research; develop your inquiry and presentation skills and prepare yourself to transfer to a university research program of study.
