Mott Community College 100 Centennial logo

Celebrating 100 Years!

On September 23, 1923, the first group of students who would make up the first graduating class of what would become Mott Community College began taking courses in the still small, but rapidly growing, City of Flint.

The academic year of 2023-24 marks 100 years of MCC changing people’s lives for the better by providing high quality, accessible, and affordable educational opportunities to what is now the greater Flint community and well beyond.

We kicked off our Centennial celebrations in 2022,and will continue the celebration as we approach our 100-year anniversary on September 23, 2023. Ongoing projects include the Centennial Year of Service and the Centennial Gardens & Murals Projects

The 2023 Centennial weekend in September will include a drive-in movie, alumni & friends snowball dance, parade, open house, fireworks, and the Centennial Mile walk/run race.

Please join us for a year of Centennial celebrations to celebrate the past, look forward to the future, and ring in our second century of learning and service!!!
