Downtown Campus

Welcome to the Downtown Campus of Monroe Community College. The campus is located at 321 State Street with the entrance on Morrie Silver Way. In addition to providing excellent educational opportunities for area students, the campus also offers an array of services for community-based organizations, local businesses and government agencies. With an urban presence, our Downtown Campus effectively achieves key elements of MCC’s mission to provide access, economic development, partnership building, and lifelong learning as well as the primary goal to prepare students for success in the classroom and beyond our doors.

MCC’s Downtown Campus utilizes cutting-edge educational technology to provide a stimulating environment for learning. In addition to the Learning Commons, the college offers multiple options to enhance student success. These include advisement, career exploration, mentoring, and personal support services. Course options include credit and non-credit offerings, basic skills, English for Speakers of Other Languages (ESOL), diplomas, certificates, and associate degrees. The Downtown Campus is home to the Departments of Education, Law & Criminal Justice, and Human Services. Many sub-disciplines are housed within these programs. On-site Pre-collegiate programs include the Liberty Partnerships Program and Upward Bound. AmeriCorps, America’s service program, is also located at the Downtown Campus.

In the Fall, 2017, we will begin a new semester. I hope that you are as excited as I am about the opportunity to build on our tradition of academic excellence at our new campus.

I wish you a productive year.
