Student Enrollment Demographics


The Moberly Area Community College Alumni Association/Foundation was officially established in the late 1970’s in order to provide a base for fundraising. The Alumni department of MACC successfully campaigned and raised 2.5 million dollars in one of the biggest fundraisers to reconstruct the Main Building. Previously, the Foundation and the Alumni Association had shared the same space for several years. Then as it grew, the two were separated. The alumni became the main fund raising source for the College. One of the most important functions of the Alumni Association is to keep in touch with former graduates, and the school depends on their contributions to fund successful programs for new and old students as well as school activities.

The Alumni committee is made up of several distinguished alumni. The officers include the Director, several alumni officers and other alumni members who meet several times a year to plan yearly activities. This committee is responsible for coming up with ideas to make the organization efficient. One of its most important responsibilities is to plan the annual Alumni and Friends Banquet held every April.
