MCC's Economic and Workforce Development: Annual Impact Report, September 2013 - January 2015

The clients (businesses) served are many and the breakdown for 2014 is as follows: Number served – 172 total; 58 new (34%);

Another successful venture to meet industry demand – our 360-hour Welding & Fabrication Industry Certificate Program. Developed in partnership with the Rochester Arc & Flame Center in Gates NY, the program has graduated 210 students, and they are currently employed at more than 100 different companies across the nation. Another example involves our contract credit initiative. In some cases, once we partner with an employer, an appropriate menu of our training/educational coursework, credit and noncredit, opens up to their employees. They can earn college credit and develop their skills. This makes academia accessible to some who would never have had the exposure or option otherwise. Staples is a current contract client of MCC Corporate College. Staples employees completed two credit courses in 2014 (Accounting 101 and Public Speaking) and have plans for another credit course in spring 2015 (BUS 208 – Organizational Behavior).

Our funding for the year consisted of $238,337 in subsidized and $1,792,586 in unsubsidized revenues. We are a quantified success and plan on more of the same. Collaborating with employers such as CooperVision and Thermo Fisher Solutions to deliver customized training to employees and our students. MCC Corporate College uses employer input to develop needed curricula. Here’s how it works: After a routine survey of local employers in the advanced manufacturing arena, a strong need for blueprint reading, GD&T and machine math training surfaced. Many of the companies in need could not afford custom training for these skills. MCC Corporate Collage leveraged NYS grant monies to pool the companies together and form one large training program.

Some of our top clients include: Paychex, Inc. University of Rochester Medical Center Unity Health System Harris RF Communications General Motors Components Holding, LLC

Problem resolved. Partnership works on so many levels, in all milieus.
