Mt. Hood Community College (MHCC) is a public community college in Gresham, Oregon, United States, named after Mount Hood. Opened in 1966, MHCC enrolls nearly 26,000 students each year and offers classes at the 212-acre (858,000 m²) main campus in Gresham, the MHCC Maywood Park Center, and evening education centers at area public schools.

The college's programs include nursing, music, funeral science, automotive technology and transfer opportunities to local universities.

The college is financed by local property tax funds, state reimbursement funds and student tuition. Local voters established the college tax base in 1968 and approved tax base increases in 1970 and 1980.

The college is known for a strong jazz performance program, and is the home of jazz radio station KMHD and was formerly the site of the Mt. Hood Jazz Festival each summer, which returned in 2008.

MHCC is also the home of an EOU (Eastern Oregon University) 4 year degree program in either Business Administration or Education, both with several concentrations. [3] The classes are held in the same manner as a regular 4 year institution. Students attend class weekly, either nights, weekends, or both and learn from accredited professors, many with PhD's (which is true of the host college, MHCC, as well). This program is under the Eastern Oregon University - Mt. Hood Metro Center.
