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 @MCC.edu mailbox from Safe Colleges Online Training with the subject line Mott Community College. This email will contain a link so you can access the training assigned to you. You will receive more than one email since more than one training session will be assigned. Each training will have a due date. The system will send out reminders. 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.
MCC has developed a five-phased approach to reopening our campus operations and expanding our staffing.
PHASE ONE - PREPARATION
PHASE TWO - CRITICAL BUSINESS CONTINUITY
PHASE THREE - ESSENTIAL BUSINESS CONTINUITY
PHASE FOUR - EXPERIENCING THE NEW NORMAL
PHASE FIVE - RE-ENGAGING VIRTUAL OPERATIONS
Due to the phased approach MCC is pursuing, all employees will have access to flexible and remote options for working.
Employees have been surveyed about their preferences regarding flexible work schedules and remote work opportunities.
Employees opting for flexible options may be scheduled to work staggered shifts of alternating days to decrease the number of people in shared workspaces.
If work can be done via tele-work, employees will continue to work remotely.
Employees with risk factors or who have recently been ill will be allowed to work remotely.
Employees working on campus will be expected to follow all standards and guidelines set forth by the college and complete training prior to returning to campus.
Meetings will occur virtually.
Human resources will provide more information on these options and is available to work with managers to accommodate employee needs.
ITS will continue to support employees in remote work.

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.
While on site, participants must follow the safety guidelines and wear the required PPE as designated in the video training.
Participants must sign a waiver for any face-to-face volunteer experience.
