Work Force Solutions

Joseph Knight, Vice President
MCC’s Workforce Solutions Division is a large umbrella that offers Career/Technical and Workforce Education and Nursing and Health Sciences Education, as well as non-credit opportunities in Adult Education, Continuing Education, Career Services, and Workforce and Grants Development. Programs in Career/Technical and Workforce Education, and Nursing and Health Sciences Education offer Associates of Applied Science, Career Certificates, or Technical Certificates; these programs are designed to meet the educational needs of students who are seeking preparation for employment in occupational fields. The non-credit programs in Workforce Solutions offer local, state, and national resources servicing industry, business, workers, and learners of all ages.

The College holds true that there is a direct correlation between the quality of one’s health and his/her capacity to learn and function well in society. MCC’s physical education courses promote personal wellness, which transcends curricular considerations, and is rather a lifelong goal for everyone. Thus, the College strongly encourages students to enroll in a physical education course as a degree plan elective.
