Mission Statement

The mission of Mott Community College is to provide high quality, accessible and affordable educational opportunities and services that cultivate student success and individual development and improve the overall quality of life in a multicultural community.

The Foundation for Mott Community College

Mission Statement:

The major purpose of the Foundation for MCC is to acquire and distribute resources to students, faculty and staff. It was established in 1986, and offers resources for broader opportunities at MCC than would be available solely from traditional income sources. The Foundation’s purposes include:

  • Provides scholarships and grants to deserving students
  • Funds special projects involving economic development, education and training
  • Strengthens existing educational programs and identifies and develops new career programs
  • Promotes professional development for faculty and staff
  • Promotes educational, literary, and scientific activities of MCC
  • Encourages greater community involvement
  • Helping MCC to help itself.

The Foundation for MCC is a non-profit corporation governed by a board of community volunteers. It is tax-exempt, and the Internal Revenue Service has ruled that gifts to the Foundation are tax deductible. Contributions may be made by gifts of cash, real or personal property, securities, by provision of a will, or by establishment of trusts. Gifts may be awarded for specific purposes or given without restrictions for use.


The history of Mott Community College spans more than 90 years of success and service. In 1923, the Flint Board of Education established Flint Junior College to make a college education available to Genesee County students at a minimal cost without forcing them to leave home. On September 23, 1923, the first class of what would become Mott Community College was held.

Charles Stewart Mott

Charles Stewart Mott

In 1950 Charles Stewart Mott gave $1 million to develop Flint Junior College into a four-year institution in collaboration with the University of Michigan, a move that created the College and Cultural Center (including the DeWaters Art Center, the Flint Institute of Arts, Longway Planetarium, Bower Theater, Sloan Museum, Whiting Auditorium, Flint Institute of Music and the Flint Public Library main branch). In 1951, William Ballenger, Sr. set aside $200,000 for the construction of an athletic field house and left a trust of several million dollars that allowed the college to hire top quality instructors to elevate Flint Junior College to a true community college. C. S. Mott then donated 32 acres of farmland and additional money for an entire new campus.

In 1957, University of Michigan-Flint was established on the MCC campus and remained here until the mid-1970s when its new downtown campus was established (although UM-F science classes remained at MCC for another decade and UM-F’s public TV station remained on the MCC campus until 2002).

In 1969, Genesee County voters converted Flint Junior College into a countywide college, Genesee Community College. When C.S. Mott died in 1973 (at age 97) Genesee Community College was renamed Charles Stewart Mott Community College.

The 1980s saw MCC enter the computer age. Student registration was fully computerized and classes were offered by television. By the mid-1990s classes were offered via videotape, television and the Internet, and satellite campuses opened in Lapeer and Fenton. In 1991, MCC helped establish the Mott Middle College, a nationally recognized program for troubled but talented high school students in the Genesee County area.

In 1996 MCC began development of the Regional Technology Center (RTC), a center for high-technology education built on the site of the old St. Joseph Hospital, adjacent to the main campus. The $40-million facility opened in September 2002 and drew more than 1,300 students its first semester. In addition, thousands of area residents have attended community events at the new RTC. At the same time, Mott College opened its Visual Arts & Design Center, offering a first quality facility for the fine arts and graphic design. Three community technology centers were also established in Flint to help bridge the “digital divide.” In 2001, MCC expanded to Livingston County, opening a Michigan Technical Education Center in Howell. In 2002, MCC also opened a new center in Clio to serve students in the northern part of Genesee County. This center was so successful (enrollment rose from 400 to 1,100 students in the first few years) that a new larger facility was opened in January 2007. The year 2010 saw the opening of a Media Arts & Entertainment Technology Center, providing professional-quality technical training for a wide variety of media-related careers.

Today, Mott College has an enrollment of more than 12,000 students and offers more than 100 degree and certificate programs in a wide range of areas, including Health Sciences, Criminal Justice, Culinary Arts, Computer Science, Business, Technology and many more.
