Muskegon Community College is guided by our mission, vision, and values.  All three of these statements should work together in harmony, without overlaps or gaps.
  • Our mission statement defines our purpose; our current mission statement was adopted in January 2017.
  • Our vision statement describes our aspirations and explains our desired end-state and what we hope to accomplish; our current vision statement was endorsed by the Board of Trustees in August 2019.
  • Our guiding values describes our behaviors and the manner in which we support our mission and achieve our vision; our current values were endorsed by the Board of Trustees in January 2021.
