Additionally, each year MCC hosts and/or participates in events and programs that promote environmental awareness. MCC employees and students volunteer for projects/initiatives that support both campus and community clean-up and conservation efforts.
GRiT is always welcoming new members and new ideas. Join us on the third Tuesday of the month at 2:00pm - 3:00pm in the Faculty and Staff lounge in CM1129.
