Montgomery College and Mott Community College Sign Memorandum of Understanding Agreement Creates Sister College Relationship Between the Two Schools
Montgomery College and Mott Community College (MCC) of Flint, Mich., signed a memorandum of understanding (MOU) to designate a sister college relationship between the two institutions. The signing took place at the Association of Community College Trustees Annual Leadership Congress in Chicago.
A memorandum of understanding is a non-binding document between two institutions that describes an intended course of action between the institutions. The purpose of the memorandum between Mott Community College and Montgomery College is to strengthen a relationship that will foster and forge collaborations and partnerships for institutional professional development and student success.
“It is my intention that in developing a Sister College relationship we will exchange information and best practices to create initiatives with far-reaching impact,” said MCC President Dr. Beverly Walker-Griffea.
The areas of focus for the memorandum include student services, academic matters, workforce development, and college operations. Both institutions will have a designated representative responsible for ensuring college community members have the opportunity to exchange information and best practices as necessary and work together to develop key initiatives. In addition, the presidents of both colleges agree to meet annually to review and assess the Sister College relationship and initiatives launched.
Dr. DeRionne P. Pollard, president of Montgomery College, said “Fostering an exchange of ideas between our faculty members, staff members and students will lead to exciting and innovative learning between MCC and MC.”
All information shared between MCC and MC will be in accordance with all local, state, and federal laws. The Mott Community College/Montgomery College MOU does not constitute a commitment of funds from either institution.
