We are dedicated to identifying and cultivating the many talents of our students through learning “by doing” in a wide variety of academic and professional programs. Our Applied Creativity and Community Transformation (ACCT) Institute fosters teaching and learning by asking students, educators, and community leaders to work together to engage in real-world problem-solving, local apprenticeship, and volunteerism.
Active Competitions: 2022
In 2022, there are three active categories of problem/solution projects at MJC aligned with the ACCT Institute’s MJC Forward initiative. These competitions ask students and instructors to work with community leaders and organizers and institution partners to transform the classroom into an exploratory laboratory where learners build-essential skill sets and better prepare for the future, all while helping solve the problems of our community.
Each of these following challenges seeks to foster innovation, creativity, problem-solving through collaboration, and flexibility by asking students to brainstorm, design, reflect, retool and rethink while engaging local organizations, college alumni, and community leaders to build momentum for their big ideas.
- Identify a Problem in Your Community
- Identify a Problem and Propose a Solution in Your Community
