Invest in the Vision


Since 1925, North Central Missouri College, formerly Trenton Junior College, has responded to the community's changing educational, cultural and economic needs. Committed to providing an affordable education, our local college has seen its highs and lows in enrollment ranging from 67 students on opening day in 1925 to over 1,800 students in recent years.

North Central Missouri College is the most affordable choice for higher education in the region. The NCMC Foundation Board recognizes it is the affordability and convenience of NCMC that bring many students here, but it is also the quality of education and personal attention that keep them here.

Rising enrollments, new programs and the constant need to keep existing programs up-to-date have put an increasing strain on the College’s resources. As state appropriations continue to decline, the outlook for funding of higher education is in jeopardy. As a result, we invite you to support the Invest in the Vision Campaign.

We now look to you—our friends, alumni, area industries and local foundations—to ensure the highest level of learning continues in North Central Missouri. We encourage you to assist us in lifelong learning and hope that you build a lifelong relationship with us. Help us maintain and sustain the future of North Central Missouri College with your commitment.

Campaign Goals

Elizabeth & Arthur Barton Farm Campus
The Elizabeth & Arthur Barton Farm Campus was created by a generous trust established by Arthur Barton son of Elizabeth Barton and devloped through the generous donations from the community. The Lager Laboratory of Plant & Energy Science and the Metcalf Mechanical Resource buildings were completed in the fall of 2011. The Kuttler Animal Science Complex was completed shortly after.
Restoring Geyer Hall
NCMC seeks to restore the heart of the campus­—Geyer Hall. This proud structure built in 1918 has served as an elementary school, a junior high school and since 1967, the anchor building of Trenton Junior College . . . now NCMC. It is most important that Geyer Hall remain a key building in the College’s future and continue to serve as the center of academic instruction.
