The Maryville College Alumni Association (MCAA) is made up of all MC graduates and all MC attendees who were enrolled at least one year and left in good academic standing. The purpose of the Association is to promote the interests and mission of the College and to consider and deal with common problems. The MCAA currently has more than 8,000 members. An annual meeting of the Alumni Association occurs each fall during Homecoming/Reunion Weekend. It is during this meeting that the Alumni Citation and Kin Takahashi Award for Young Alumni winners are recognized. The MCAA is governed by the Alumni Board.
The Alumni Board is the governing body of the MCAA. The Board meets twice annually, once in the fall and once in the spring semester. Board members are responsible for keeping the Alumni Office and the administration informed about the alumni opinion. They also serve in a leadership role by encouraging fellow alumni to remain engaged with the College in areas including student recruitment, alumni relations, volunteering and fundraising (advancement). The primary fundraising role of the Board is its annual support of the Maryville Fund, which assists to fund annual operating expenses of the College.
