Middlesex Community College is conveniently located in Central Connecticut and is easily accessible via major interstates.

Vision & Mission
In all it does, Middlesex Community College strives
to be the college of its community. By providing high quality,
affordable, and accessible education to a diverse population, the
college enhances the strengths of individuals through degree,
certificate, and lifelong learning programs that lead to university
transfer, employment, and an enriched awareness of our shared
responsibilities as global citizens.
MxCC is committed to environmental stewardship and to the principles
of sustainable development first articulated in the Brundtland
Commission Report of 1987. Simply stated, sustainable development means
meeting the needs of the current generation without compromising the
ability of future generations to meet their needs. At MxCC, we will
practice sustainability in the operation of our buildings and grounds,
we will infuse sustainability across our curriculum, and we will provide
opportunities for our college community to engage in sustainable
activities outside the classroom and in the community.
