Joel Frater
Executive Dean of
Damon City Campus

Welcome to Damon City Campus, DCC, the downtown campus of Monroe Community College. The campus is housed in the Sibley Building, conveniently located within Rochester's Downtown Innovation Zone. 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, Damon City 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 Damon City Campus utilizes cutting-edge educational technology to provide a stimulating environment for learning, including a new Center for Active Learning that employs up-to-the minute advances in teaching and learning. In addition to the library and learning centers, 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. DCC 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 Liberty Partnerships and Upward Bound. Americorps, America’s service program, is also located at DCC.

In less than two years, DCC will relocate to its new campus at 321 State Street. I hope that you are as excited as I am about the opportunity to build on our tradition of academic excellence in this new space.

I wish you a productive year.
