Strategic Plan

In 2022, MHCC embarked on a significant undertaking: the development of a strategic plan with equity as its central focus. This plan was crafted by interviewing stakeholders from both within and outside the college community. These conversations helped shape the plan, ensuring that it reflected the diverse perspectives and needs of all parties involved. The college's unwavering commitment to equity underscores not only its dedication to fairness and inclusivity but also its resolve to provide equal opportunities for all students, regardless of their backgrounds. This strategic plan underscores the institution's commitment to cultivating a diverse and thriving learning environment.
