Program Advisory Boards

Each of MCC’s professional programs hosts a Program Advisory Board comprising employers and industry leaders who help the college to stay abreast of the needs and nature of its primary service area. These advisory boards help shape program curriculum and provide valuable information and feedback on the efficacy of the college’s offerings, as well as the current conditions of the state’s varied business and industries.
