MACC Proudly Celebrates Career and Technical Education Month – February, 2018!


MACC Proudly Celebrates Career and Technical Education Month

CTE Month logo 2017 fullcolor TP small2/5/2018
Students, faculty and staff at MACC will join others across the nation during the month of February to celebrate national Career and Technical Education (CTE) Month®. CTE Month provides CTE programs across the country an opportunity to demonstrate how CTE makes students college- and career- ready and prepares them for high-wage, high-demand career fields. Programs that are offered through MACC include:

  • Allied Health Programs: Associate Degree Nursing, Practical Nursing, Medical Laboratory Technician, Phlebotomy and Occupational Therapy Assistant
  • CTE Programs:
    • Associate of Applied Science Degrees in Business Administration, Business Office Administration, Computer Information Technology (Networking & Programming), Early Childhood, Engineering Design & Development (Machine Tool and Architectural & Mechanical Design), and Engineering Systems (Mechatronics & Maintenance).
    • Certificate Programs in Architectural & Mechanical Design, Accounting, Business Office Administration, Computer Information Technology (Networking & Programming), Early Childhood Education, Maintenance, Mechatronics, and Marketing/Management.
    • Certificates of Specialization in Architectural & Mechanical Design and Early Learning Assistant.
    • Law Enforcement Training Center
    • Fire Academy Training Center
    • Emergency Medical Technician Training Center
    • Heavy Highway Construction Training Center
  • Entrepreneurship and Business Development Center
  • Non-Degree Programs such as Certified Nursing Assistant, Certified Medication Technician, Certified Production Technician, and Insulin Administration
  • Other on demand/short term courses such as Web Applications, MS Excel, etc.


What Is CTE infographic“This year we plan to engage students in the CTE programs. The students understand the relevance CTE courses offer them,” said Sonda Stuart, director of the Career & Technical Education Data & Student Success. “CTE programs are investing in students and providing them with the latest technology and skills that will prepare them to become successful employees and future leaders.”

Students can attend public community and technical colleges for a fraction of the cost of tuition at other institutions: $3,520, on average, in 2016-2017.

According to research in Texas, Colorado and Virginia, graduates with technical or applied science associate degrees out-earn bachelor's degree holders by $2,000 to $11,000.

27 percent of people with less than an associate degree, including licenses and certificates, earn more than the average bachelor’s degree recipient.

Career & Technical Education addresses the needs of high-growth industries and helps close the skills gap. Half of all STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, & Math) jobs call for workers with less than a bachelor's degree. Health care occupations are projected to grow 18 percent by 2026, adding more than 2 million new jobs. Three million workers will be needed for the nation's infrastructure in the next decade, including designing, building and operating transportation, housing, utilities and telecommunications. Almost half of the energy workforce may need to be replaced by 2024, and demand for solar and wind energy technicians will double. More than 80 percent of manufacturers report that talent shortages will impact their ability to meet customer demand.

CTE students on the postsecondary level are also a broad and varied group, but they are more likely than other students to be older, married and working part- or full-time. They are also more likely to come from a family background of less educational attainment. CTE is offered at all levels of postsecondary education, including two-year and four-year colleges. In 2005, more than 5,700 postsecondary institutions--90 percent of all Title IV eligible schools--offered career education. In addition, about 3,200 postsecondary institutions awarded certificates that take at least one year but less than two years and more than 2,500 institutions awarded associate degrees and less-than-one- year certificates.

MACC provides dynamic and accessible educational opportunities that empower our students and enrich our communities. For more information about MACC Career & Technical Programs call 660.263.4100 ext 11238.

Jorgenson Gallery Hosts Missouri and the Great War Traveling Exhibit


Jorgenson Gallery Hosts Missouri and the Great War Traveling Exhibit


Moberly residents can explore Missouri’s vital role during World War I in a traveling exhibit featuring stories, images, and artifacts from museums, libraries, archives and private collections across the state, including the Randolph County Historical Society.

The exhibit, Missouri and the Great War, is currently on display in the Jorgenson Gallery at Moberly Area Community College until February 23, 2018.  The community is welcome to attend a free, public reception on Tuesday, January 30, from 5-7PM, featuring Denzil Heaney, Administrator of the General John J. Pershing boyhood home in Laclede, MO. Heaney will cover General Pershing’s life after he left Laclede and discuss new WWI memorials.

Missourians contributed to the war effort even before the United States joined the hostilities in April 1917. Missouri industries supplied mules, munitions and other goods to Allied armies. More than 156,000 Missourians served in the war, including future president Harry S. Truman, Walt Disney and Gens. John J. Pershing and Enoch Crowder.

To tell these stories, the Springfield-Greene County Library District and the Missouri Humanities Council developed the traveling exhibit to explore World War I history through the perspective of Missouri and Missourians. Visitors to the Jorgenson Gallery will learn about the contributions of Missouri women and African Americans to the war effort and discover the vital role Missouri horses and mules played in the war.

The exhibit includes two touch-screen kiosks, where visitors can explore more content and locate Missouri’s World War I monuments, as well as a seven-minute documentary featuring footage from the war.   The Jorgenson Gallery also partnered with the Randolph County Historical Society to present artifacts donated by families of local soldiers such as supplies and uniforms.

“One of the Missouri Humanities Council’s priorities is helping local communities maximize their resources and bring exceptional cultural programming to all Missouri residents,” said Steve Belko, executive director of the Missouri Humanities Council. “Missouri and the Great War allows Missouri communities to access historical archives from across the state.”

Missouri and the Great War will travel to a total of nine locations, including Kirksville’s A.T. Still University and libraries and museums across the state in 2017 and 2018. The exhibit is based on the online digital archive www.missourioverthere.org, which features documents, photographs, artifacts, and other WWI items from 30 Missouri museums, archives, libraries and historical societies.

The Missouri Humanities Council and the Springfield-Greene County Library District developed this exhibition with funding provided by the Missouri Humanities Council, Friends of Springfield-Greene County Library District, and the RDW Family and Community Fund.

The Jorgenson Fine Arts Gallery, named in honor of MACC President Emeritus Dr. Evelyn E. Jorgenson, was created during the remodel of the historic MACC Coliseum in 2002. The wing provides an updated and expanded space for Graphic Arts & Fine Arts programs, including lab space, classrooms, and studios. The Gallery hosts rotating exhibits throughout the year featuring the work of national and international artists as well as local high school and MACC student work. The Gallery is open to the public Monday through Thursday from 7AM to 8:30PM and on Friday from 7AM to 4PM.

MACC AG Launching in Mexico


MACC AG Launching in Mexico


In response to community need and demand and in an effort to expand offerings at its Mexico, MO, campus, Moberly Area Community College is moving forward with designing and implementing programs focused on the agriculture industry. Students pursuing these degrees would be able to use their A+ benefit to pay for classes.

Students with plans to pursue a bachelor’s degree in an agriculture field will now have additional choices available to them in MACC’s Spring 2018 course offerings. New courses will be phased in over the next 18 months. Rural Sociology, the first new course designed for students interested in agriculture, will be offered in the online format in the Spring semester.

Additional courses that will be developed and phased in over the coming months may include Soils and Plant Science. Course rotations will be adjusted to ensure that students have access to transfer courses that are recommended for a four-year degree in agriculture; these courses include Atmospheric Science, Introduction to Business, Geology, Biology, Plant Biology, Macroeconomics, and Microeconomics.

MACC faculty and staff are currently working with an Agriculture Advisory Board comprised of local business leaders and educators in the Mexico area. The Board’s goal is to identify and recommend an Associate of Applied Science (AAS) in an agriculture field that would provide the training and education needed to serve the area’s employment needs.

MACC’s Engineering Systems Mechatronics degree is scheduled to be expanded to the Mexico campus beginning in Fall 2018. Courses offered in the Mechatronics degree could also serve as courses in an AAS agriculture degree; some of these courses include Fluid Power Principles, DC/AC Electronics, and Mechanical Systems.

For additional information about MACC’s agriculture initiatives e-mail .
