Dean's Welcome

"Oh the Place You'll Go" is a familiar refrain from the popular children's book by Dr. Seuss which challenges us to fully experience the power and potential of life through the intentional development of our gifts and abilities. In the Arts and Communications Division we further extend this invitation to you as you seek to live your best life. We believe that when you choose to learn through the experiences created by our distinctive faculty and division team - that indeed, our MVC mission to "empower people and transform community" will increasingly become your personal reality in ways that will exceed your expectations - Welcome!
