Professional Development & Experiential Learning


“The mission of the Experiential Learning Office at Mott Community College is to support the development and integration of meaningful, active, hands-on experience for students in order to meet learning objectives and community needs.”

Goal Statements:

  • To provide a centralized source of information relative to experiential learning for the college
  • To continue to develop systems that use experiential (work-based and community-based) learning to further develop the academic and technical skills of students at Mott Community College
  • To provide support and resources to faculty interested in the integration of experiential learning into their courses
  • To provide support and resources to students interested in experiential learning, in order that they grow and become engaged citizens through service and academics
  • To identify and support opportunities for students by connecting theory with experience and thought with actions to realize learning objectives in MCC / Academic and Career Technical Education and programs and courses
  • To build capacity and fulfill needs in our community through reciprocal partnerships and establish MCC as a community partner that provides benefit to students, area businesses and the overall community

Here’s what former Experiential Learning students have to say:

  • “Give volunteering a chance! You will be surprised how much your services can make others’ lives a little easier”
  • “Don’t look at this service as something you have to do, but look at it as making a difference.”
  • “You may find a part of yourself that you didn’t know was in there”compassion and empathy.”
  • “Learning the history behind the doors at Whaley’s (Children Center) made the experience very meaningful…that you can take a piece of home with you in your heart.”
