About MCC

Office of Community Outreach

The Office of Community Outreach (OCO) at MCC is responsible for managing the communications and image of the college. Our primary functions include institutional marketing (including graphics), media relations, alumni relations, MCC TV, web content management and Continuing Education. Our goal is to provide one point of contact for any communication-related activities. 

If you are a community member interested in engaging with the College, please contact Trynette Lottie-Harps, Dean of Community Outreach, at (231) 777-0559 or trynette.lottie-harps@muskegoncc.edu.

Our Goals
The Office of Community Outreach organizes its work using a Continuous Quality Improvement (CQI) plan that defines the Office’s goals, tactics, intended outcomes, and measurement tools in the areas of Brand Management, Media Relations, Marketing, Alumni Relations, and MCC TV.

Alumni Relations
An important constituency the OCO works with is the alumni of MCC. MCC is proud of its alumni and the great contributions they are making in our community. For more information about alumni relations visit the MCC Alumni page or contact Julie Weller at 231.777.0461, or by email at Julie.Weller@muskegoncc.edu.

MCC’s own TV station is a service to the community that provides access to information on local and global issues. For more information visit the MCC TV page.
