- In the early 1960's, community leaders became concerned about the education of nurses in the Rochester area. Led by local physician Dr. Samuel J. Stabins, they established Monroe Community College as an educational institution which would prepare students to work in local hospitals and health care facilities. MCC became part of the State University of New York system, and its program offerings were expanded to prepare graduates for a wide range of job fields or transfer to four-year institutions. MCC's first class - 720 students - enrolled in September, 1962. Since then, enrollment has increased steadily and new programs have been developed to meet the changing requirements of the local community. The college Opened new four rink ESL Sports Centre in September 1998, Damon City Campus at Rochester in 1992 and Applied Technologies Center in early 1997. MCC's Brighton Campus is located on a 300-acre site at the junction of routes 390 and 590, just outside the city limits of Rochester, New York. The two newest academic buildings, opened in 1993, add modern learning facilities and electronic classrooms to the College's instructional space. The campus also includes a communications building, a 500-seat theater, art gallery and a large health and physical education complex with indoor pool and fitness center. A child care center is located on the campus, a short walk from the academic buildings. MCC is accredited by the Middle States Association of Colleges and Secondary Schools.
