Faculty and Staff Training

To keep MCC as safe as possible, there will be required training for all Faculty and Staff of the College as we prepare to reopen and begin our "new normal". Training will be done using the SafeCollege training system. We already use this platform for mandatory Sexual Harassment Prevention and Title IX training. Employees who work on campus, those who work remotely, and those who may work with a hybrid schedule will be assigned training. This means all faculty and staff will be assigned training. 


When training is assigned, an email will be sent to your mailbox from Safe Colleges Online Training with the subject line Mott Community College.The email will contain a link to access the training assigned to you. You must complete the training before returning to campus. The system will send out reminders weekly until you complete the training. Reports of training completions will be reviewed on a regular basis as part of monitoring our readiness for reopening. Please know, the assigned training will be required for all Faculty and Staff of the College.


Students will also be assigned training. Details will be shared with students in a separate communication. Student training will be provided through the College learning management system, Canvas.

Additional Information

What do you do when you see someone who is not practicing the Standards? 

If an MCC employee, student, onsite partner, or visitor observes someone who is not complying with the College’s Reopening Standards, that person should first politely remind the individual of the Standards established by the College (if the person feels comfortable doing so).

In the event the noncompliant individual continues to disregard the Reopening Standards and/or if the observer does not feel comfortable approaching the individual, they may contact MCC Public Safety to report the noncompliance.

Public Safety will then respond and politely remind the noncompliant individual of the importance of adhering to MCC’s Reopening Standards and request that they come into compliance. If the individual becomes compliant, nothing further will occur. If the individual refuses to comply, MCC Public Safety has the authority to remove the person from the College.

If an individual demonstrates repeated noncompliance with the College’s Reopening Standards, Public Safety will either work with the individual’s manager (if the person is an employee) or with staff in Student Success Services (if the person is a student) to try to further educate and bring the individual into compliance.

In the event that a person is demonstrating blatant and continuous disregard for the health and safety of the College community, Public Safety will require the individual to leave the College and report the same to that individual’s manager or the Vice President for Student Academic Success.

The Department of Public Safety can be reached at (810) 762-0222, 24 hours a day, seven days a week. 

Volunteer and Service Learning opportunities will be available.

  • Volunteerism and service learning will continue to be offered through the Office of Experiential Learning for faculty, staff, and students to meet the essential needs of the community and sustain reciprocity between the campus and the community. 

  • Virtual experiences will be the primary focus while some face-to-face experiences will be offered as approved by the respective Executive Cabinet member.

  • Before heading to the site of service for the first time, participants will view the training video, and before each visit, conduct self-wellness checks. If symptoms are present participants will follow required protocols as obtained in the video training.
