Macomb Community College is hosting a week of “Reconnect on Campus” events starting July 17th.
This “Reconnect on Campus” event is part of a statewide campaign to connect working-age adults with postsecondary educational opportunities through the Michigan Department of Labor and Economic Development’s Michigan Reconnect program.
