CONVERSATION DAY & BEYOND Conversation One: What matters most? Conversation Two: What are MCC’s strengths? Conversation Three: What is most important for MCC to do right now? The AQIP process began with an extensive self-assessment. On November 4, 2005, MCC was closed for an all-day employee meeting about the future of the College. Action Project Survey #1: Employees quantitatively rank the top 10 Action Project Proposals via an online survey. Employee Forum #1: Employees qualitatively discuss the top 10 Action Project Proposals.
MCC: COMMUNITY CONVERSATION As part of the College’s overall strategic planning process, MCC will conduct 7 community forums and a number of focus groups to gather stakeholder input on the proposed action projects.
