North Central Missouri College

Progress continues to be made on renovations of Geyer Hall as North Central Missouri College officials expect the building to be ready by mid-August, with the Fall classes beginning August 22.

College President Lenny Klaver presented his report on the Geyer Hall project to the NCMC Board of Trustees. It included many “punch list” items yet to be completed by the general contractor and subcontractors.

Doctor Klaver told Trustees that the general contractor from Kirksville has been advised that the college faculty would like to be in the Geyer Hall building by August 15th.

Trustees also were advised the existing stored furniture is to be moved back this week.

Teresa Cross reported members of the NCMC Foundation will tour Geyer Hall before their August quarterly board meeting. She noted the Geyer Hall capital campaign now totals more than five million $584,000 in donations and pledges.

Doctor Klaver discussed with Trustees, the legislative agenda for community college presidents and the MCCA task force mission review. Locally, he talked about planning crisis communications, the ag curriculum, and the college admissions team.

Interim Vice President for Academic Affairs Sharon Weiser discussed proposed Higher Ed Coordinating Board changes in community college developmental education. She also spoke of changes in performance funding when the state allocates new operating appropriations to public colleges and universities.

Ms. Weiser reported NCMC has met three-year results to be eligible for performance funding.
