Muskegon Community College has signed a purchase agreement with The Herald Publishing Co. LLC and the owners of the former Muskegon Chronicle building, 981 Third St., to buy the building and an adjacent parking lot.

The announcement was made during a special meeting of the MCC Board of Trustees on Thursday, Sept. 11.

The identification of a downtown campus is a component of the College’s 2010-15 Facility Master Plan and is one of four projects approved by the voters in the November 2013 election.

Among the MCC academic programs to be located there are Applied Technology, Electronics, Industrial Technology, Renewable Energy, and Entrepreneurial Studies, as well as Experiential Learning opportunities.

Our mission is to ensure that our students receive the services, resources and support they need to succeed. Historically, we know that facilities, especially those equipped with state-of-the-art technology, are vital for our graduates to compete in today’s market. On behalf of the Muskegon Community College Board of Trustees, thank you all for helping the College take positive action to support our students, faculty, staff, and community.
