A partnership for community success.

MCC’s Economic Development and Innovative Workforce Services division (EDIWS) is a unique partnership between Monroe Community College and Rochester businesses and organizations. Through extensive research of local labor market data, we identify the career areas – for corporate positions, as well as for skilled labor – that are in need of quality workers. We then create the academic, career and educational programming to teach our students to succeed in these particular fields.

Through public-private partnerships and educational innovation, MCC prepares students for sustainable careers, helping area businesses stay competitive and strengthening the local economy. For students, knowing that they’re on a direct path to a career makes learning even more fulfilling – and shows the true value of an MCC education.
