Exploring new Academic, Co-Curricular, and Extra-Curricular Programs

As the campus explores possibilities for new housing as part of the NCMC Board’s charge to Dr. Lenny Klaver to increase enrollment, new programs are planned to be part of that process. With the opening of the North Belt Center (NBC) in Andrew County, three new academic programs are being offered: Associate degrees in Early Childhood Education and Behavioral Health Associate and an Agribusiness Certificate. Planning is underway for Trenton campus offerings in the form of certificate programs in Ag Mechanics and Livestock Management as well as Associate programs in Sport Management and Digital Media. Further, a few new twists have been added to the Industrial Maintenance Certificate and a new apprenticeship program with options in manufacturing, retail, and business are coming as revised and new programs this spring.

To provide students with a more full undergraduate experience, the administration is working on the addition of co-curricular programs in Music (vocal and instrumental) and Drama. These programs will offer students the ability to continue their interests and talents into college life much the way as students do in our athletics program. Regarding athletics, there may also be some expansion ahead for aspiring NCMC Pirates. With the addition of Men’s and Women’s golf last year, the athletic and campus administration is looking toward additional extracurricular sports programs. At this time, nothing is set in stone, but consideration is being given to men’s and women’s soccer, women’s volleyball, women’s tennis, and cross country as well as a possible cheer squad. Interest in these programs has resulted from prospective student interest indicated from Admissions Counselor visits to schools and college fairs in the region. For certain, NCMC is excited as we look ahead to our next phase of growth and expansion.

Looking into Housing Expansion

As North Central Missouri College grows in enrollment along with considering the aging status of current on-campus housing, Selby and Ellsworth Halls, NCMC administration has begun to explore possibilities for construction of a new residence hall(s). The initial consideration was one large 240-bed residence hall with student-center aspects such as campus dining and a new bookstore-campus shop. The result was considered to be too costly to pursue at present. In turn, a design was sought as a series of 45-bed buildings in a suite style setting which could, over time, be approximately the same regarding capacity. In the latter configuration, NCMC can build on an ‘as-needed’ basis and eventually replace Selby and Ellsworth as residence halls. A student-center type building may be in the longer range plans in the form of combining such with an array of student services and administrative offices. Over the course of the next year and financing planning researched, the campus should be positioned to move forward with the housing expansion plans.
