Mid Michigan Community College is governed by seven publically elected members of its Board of Trustees. These residents of Clare and Gladwin counties ensure that MMCC achieves its mission and continues to act as a good steward of the college’s resources.
In 2015, MMCC will celebrate its 50th year of providing exceptional, affordable, and open-access post-secondary education to the mid-Michigan region. Over that time, the college’s enrollment, program offerings, and scope have experienced tremendous growth. MMCC has remained committed to providing personalized attention to its students and to working in direct partnership with area industries to customize trainings that equip students to enter meaningful careers.
