Sponsor: Metropolitan Community College
Since 1974, Metropolitan Community College has strived to provide the highest quality education and training for the best value in Nebraska. Accredited by the Higher Learning Commission of the North Central Association, MCC is the second-largest postsecondary institution in the state. Our mission is to provide quality learning experiences for a diverse community of lifelong learners in our four-county service area.
As a comprehensive, full-service public community college, MCC is focused on meeting the needs of Dodge, Douglas, Sarpy and Washington counties. MCC serves nearly 50,000 credit and noncredit students annually; nearly a quarter of those students are minorities. To meet the needs of this diverse population, MCC works with area partners to develop educational, workforce and economic solutions designed to serve learners of all ages—from preschool to college and beyond. From cutting-edge workforce development programs to alleviating urban poverty through our developmental education, Metropolitan Community College is committed to meeting the challenges of education in the 21st century.
Through it all, MCC encourages active learning, cooperation, faculty contact, prompt feedback and more—in a setting with the highest level of accreditation, transferability of credits and quality degree and certification programs. At the end of the day, investment in education makes a difference: One dollar invested in MCC today will return $3.50 in the future.
