Institutions Reaffirm Strong Bonds
After a more than 18-year partnership, officials from Central Methodist University and East Central College gathered on the ECC campus in Union to reaffirm the partnership and to revise and approve several academic agreements.
"Over the years we've seen the relationship grow and flourish," noted ECC President Jon Bauer to those assembled. "With the updates to our agreements, the benefits will continue for ECC and the people in our district and service region."
"Central Methodist University is honored to partner with East Central College in serving students in the area," CMU President Marianne Inman said. "We are pleased to be able to bring baccalaureate and graduate programs of high quality to the convenience of the ECC campus."
Though the two institutions have been working together since 1994, and CMU has an office and staff on the ECC campus, both colleges must at times evaluate official academic agreements to make sure they are current and reflect changes at each college.
The review of the documents, while critical to insuring a harmonious transition from ECC students into CMU's four-year degree programs, isn't the most exciting of work. But it does give everyone a chance to get together and celebrate the rewards of the partnership.
Academic programs that were validated at the ceremony included CMU bachelor's degrees in criminal justice, psychology, early childhood education, middle school education-social sciences, accounting, business, and the registered nurse-to-bachelor of science in nursing (RN to BSN).
CMU offers several other bachelor?s degree programs through ECC, as well as master's degrees in education and in nursing.
