In January 2024, MCC’s Board of Trustees selected the architecture and engineering firm of TowerPinkster to develop a new Facilities Plan for the College.  The last Facilities Plan was developed back in 2010 by TowerPinkster.  The majority of the recommendations from the previous Facilities Plan were implemented through the building and renovation projects that were completed between 2013-2019.  This new Facilities Plan will provide the College with additional recommendations for the future with the goal of providing exceptional environments for effective teaching and learning (Strategic Plan Priority #3 Excellence – Goal #9).

The new Plan will include an assessment of the condition and accessibility of the College’s facilities.  TowerPinkster will seek input from students, faculty, staff, the MCC Board of Trustees and the community in developing the Plan.  It is anticipated that the process will be completed with a Facilities Plan report of the results being presented to the Board in the Fall of 2024.
