Office of the President


Welcome to Muskegon Community College, a dynamic institution serving Muskegon, Newaygo, Oceana, and Ottawa counties, as well as students online around the state, nation and world.  We continually strive to be a higher education leader in student success, community engagement, and innovative academic programming.

Muskegon Community College is on the move. Thanks to the generosity of the Muskegon County residents and support from Lansing to Washington D.C., our campus is experiencing its most significant facilities upgrade since the construction of our current site in 1967.  Our state of the art Science Center is open for business, a life and physical sciences building which will serve our campus and business community for years to come. Our Downtown Center, an adaptive reuse of the former Muskegon Chronicle press building and Masonic Temple, will open this August, housing advanced manufacturing, entrepreneurial studies and more, taught in the heart of historic downtown Muskegon.

We will break ground on our Health and Wellness Center on campus in mid-2017, upgrade the recently purchased MCC Lakeshore Fitness Center (former Muskegon YMCA building), and complete design work on our Arts Center on campus.

Just as importantly, MCC is a leader in student success, having recently been named an Achieving the Dream Leader College and named the top-ranked community college among the 28 in the State of Michigan.

These exciting campus renovations and additions enhance MCC’s focused efforts to remain nationally and internationally competitive by connecting our exceptional faculty and staff with new state-of-the-art facilities.

As always, please feel free to contact me at (231) 777-0303 or by email at if you have questions or need assistance in any matter.

Best Regards,
Dale K. Nesbary, Ph.D., President
