50th Anniversary

East Central College is excited to begin its 50th anniversary celebration in 2018!

On April 2, 1968, voters approved the establishment of the Junior College District of East Central Missouri. On September 15, 1969, nearly 17 months later, the first classes were held in temporary facilities at Memorial Auditorium in downtown Union. Today, we are proud to continue our mission as a dynamic entity within the local region, offering excellent educational opportunities and program partnerships between the College, other educational organizations and local business and industry.

The 50th anniversary kicked off April 2, 2018, and will culminate with a celebration on Sunday afternoon, September 15, 2019. That event will include opportunities to reconnect with former students and faculty, food trucks, activities for children, and a showcase of ECC programs. Please check this page regularly for updates!
