Today's Vision...Tomorrow's Reality
A Foundation for Progress
Provide a new resource for student recruitment and retention. Approximately twenty-two (22%) percent of the student population, majoring in a variety of academic programs, participate in one of the college's six inter collegiate sports programs. Constructing the Peter and Dolores Graff Events Center creates the possibility for new academic programs, such as recreation, sports and events management; wellness and athletic training; and nutritional and dietary management.
Provide cultural, recreational, and personal development activities. Constructing the Events Center creates the opportunity for hosting intramural sports; summer athletic and academic camps; state/regional Phi Beta Lambda, Phi Theta Kappa, Student Senate, and Student Leadership conferences; and expanded extra-curricular activities.
Re-enforce the College's commitment to the community by hosting public service activities. Constructing the Events Center creates a multi-functional space that will support community sports activities and programs, including local and regional tournaments; business and industry conferences and training; concerts; and cultural symposiums. It will enhance MCC's visibility and community presence by creating new partnerships with schools, businesses, local governments and organizations throughout Nebraska.
Provide various student support services and activities to assist students and enhance their college experience. Constructing the Events Center creates athletic facilities that compliment the quality of the College's academic resources. Teamwork and leadership skills gained on the field of play are part of a complete learning experience, and carry over into the competitive worlds of business, medicine, government and the arts.
"A facility such as the new Peter and Dolores Graff Events Center will demonstrate to the community, Southwest Nebraska and most importantly to students that our college is academically strong and supports its student-athletic programs."
