Every Student Is a Story

 The Reason Why


2017 Fall Return Week: Photo Gallery Live!

Need proof that Mountain View College had the best Return Week ever? Look no further than our very own photo gallery, which represents just some of what makes MVC a “Promising Place to Work” (as recognized by NISOD three years in a row!).


Return Week kicked off with a variety of sessions focused on the overall theme of “Shaping Our Future: Common Goals.” The entire week emphasized large-scale campus, district, and state efforts we are a part of.


With over twenty professional development sessions led by MVC family members, there was something for everyone to participate in.


The best part of any Return Week is always the chance to reconnect with employees we don’t get to see every day. It’s an opportunity for the entire MVC family to learn, laugh, and love what we do.


The all-employee Convocation kicked off on Thursday and reinforced the key message of common goals across the institution, district, and state initiatives.


We also recognized employees and their dedication to the institution by honoring years of service and other meaningful awards.


Our afternoon session was led by MVC’s Vice Presidents and encompassed Guided Pathways, 60×30, and Achieving the Dream initiatives.


Thursday afternoon ended by reminding us why we are all here and celebrating our students during the MVC Student Convocation.


As if all of the above wasn’t enough, there was even a kickoff event for the annual employee giving campaign. Our Vice Presidents supported the kickoff by scooping ice cream for faculty, staff, and students.


None of Return Week would have possible of course without all the volunteers who worked behind-the-scenes.

MVC Golf Tournament

Being a fully engaged employee at Mountain View College includes both on and off-campus participation. This is the perfect opportunity to join other MVC employees and participate in some friendly competition in the process (while receiving PD credit of course). We’ll see you on the green!


About the Tournament

Whether you’re the next Jordan Spieth, or just dusting off your old clubs, come join us at our Scramble Golf Tournament. Assemble a team of four golfers or come solo for a day of friendly competition. Here’s how a scramble tournament works: The best of the four shots is selected; all players move their balls to that spot and play their second shot.  The better of the second shots is selected; all players move their balls to that spot and play their third shots; and so on until the ball is holed. The HIGHEST score you can get per hole is par.  Tee times will depend on number of teams.
