Profoundly improve the way MCC delivers on its Vision, Mission, and Values.


Enhance organizational success through integrated planning, institutional research, informed decision-making, student outcomes assessment, accreditation, and grant development.

How We Interpret Our Vision and Mission Statements

Organizational success is only possible when our students, departments, committees, initiatives, and divisions succeed. We work tirelessly to enhance organizational success by creating and facilitating: integrated planning processes, applied institutional research, informed decision-making practices, insight into student learning and performance, continued accreditation that assures quality, and grant development and management aimed at funding organizational priorities.

What We Value

We value students, professionalism, collegiality, diversity, effectiveness, snark, accuracy, creativity, health, humor, efficiency, service excellence, fun, and snacks and treats.

How We Operate

We utilize a customer-focused, internal consulting approach to deliver on our vision, mission, and values in support of MCC’s Vision, Mission, and Values. We take our work seriously but we don’t take ourselves too seriously (92.81% of the time).

Focus on Success: The Strategic Plan

Strategic planning at Mesa Community College (MCC) is a dynamic, collaborative, and continuous process that sets the future direction for the college, ensuring the long-term viability of our institution for our students and community. Our Strategic Plan serves to translate our vision into strategy by leveraging key strategic priorities: Student Success and Retention, e-Learning, Workforce Development, and Resource Development.

Strategic Planning

  • Focuses on what the college as a whole will do to position for the future
  • Addresses large-scale issues affecting the college
  • Relies on input from internal and external environments
  • Provides direction for operational activities throughout the college

Supporting and advancing our core activities of teaching and learning, as well as improving and augmenting services to students, remain central to all we do as a college. Maintaining this focus will make certain that our vision becomes reality.
