Did You Know?

Learning Commons

The MCC Learning Commons is a collaboration among the following:

Together, the departments support students' learning by providing access to various learning technologies, expert research assistance, print and online research resources, IT help, writing and tutoring help, and multiple study spaces for individual and group learners.

The space, resources, and services in a common area promote an active and collaborative learning environment.
