About Our College
In October 1970, a public vote established MCC as a county college and elected its first board of governors. The board planned to have three campuses (in Kingman, Bullhead City and Lake Havasu City), later expanding to Colorado City. In June 1971, J. Leonard and Grace Neal donated 160 acres of land north of Kingman where the college’s first facilities were developed, and in October 1972, McCulloch Properties donated a parcel of land located in Lake Havasu City. The college became part of the Arizona State System of Community Colleges in 1974, and received full accreditation from the North Central Association of Colleges and Schools in 1981.
