About Our College
MCC was founded as Muskegon Junior College in 1926 and has been continually accredited by the Higher Learning Commission since 1929. The community college district was created via the Michigan Constitution of 1963 along with an elected Board of Trustees and the college moved to its current campus location, an Alden B. Dow designed facility that opened to the public in 1967. In 1995, the Stevenson Center for Higher Education opened; it comprised a consortium of Ferris State University, Grand Valley State University, and Western Michigan University, designed to increase access to educational opportunities for Muskegon residents. In 2010 the Outdoor Learning Lab, a focal point of green technology and center for MCC's new Alternative and Renewable Energy certificate program, opened. Several new or expanded buildings were constructed or commissioned from 2014.
