College History

History

The origins of Monroe Community College took place in 1961, when well known local physician Dr. Samuel J. Stabins (1901 - 1989) recognized the need to prepare students to work in local hospitals and health care facilities, and founded MCC. MCC became part of the SUNY system, and its program offerings were expanded to prepare graduates for employment or transfer to four-year institutions. The College�s first home in Rochester�s former East High School at 410 Alexander Street had been condemned by the city as a fire hazard, forcing the school to make renovations. On September 9, 1962, the original campus re-opened, with an enrollment 720 students. Three years later, in June 1965, MCC became the first college in the nation to receive accreditation within three years of its founding. In 1968, the College responded to increasing enrollment by moving to a new campus on East Henrietta Road in Brighton. In 1991, the College announced plans for a second campus to serve a steady influx of students. The Damon City Campus, named in honor of longtime Trustee E. Kent Damon, opened its doors the following year in downtown Rochester, and educates students in law, criminal justice, human services and k-12 teaching. To date, MCC has served more than a quarter of a million people. Within the past several years, MCC has welcomed the additions of the Louis S. and Molly B. Wolk Center for Excellence in Nursing and the PAC fitness and recreational facility to help meet evolving educational needs of people throughout our region.
