The Maricopa Community Colleges announced the Culinary Arts Program at Mesa Community College (MCC) will transition to Scottsdale Community College (SCC) beginning this fall.
MCC decided to transfer its Culinary Arts Program after evaluating a number of factors. Since 2010, the MCC program has been meeting at Dobson High School and prior to this location, the program operated out of the East Valley Institute of Technology for three years. Finding a location for the Culinary Arts program has been a challenge and would require a considerable infusion of funds to build a state-of-the-art facility.
Beginning fall 2012, MCC will no longer offer Culinary Arts courses. Students currently enrolled in the Culinary Arts Program at MCC will receive assistance transitioning to the SCC program in the fall if they choose to do so.
