ECTC Archives: Alumni

Description of ECTC archives holdings; a brief history; finding aids; images


The ECC Alumni Association formed in 1981. It became inactive in the late 80s but was revived in 1991 under the leadership of North Central Education Foundation..

The association held regular meetings, sponsored activities and organized fundraising events. It also published a newsletter that contained some campus and ECC employee news but focused on personal and professional news of alumni. In the early 90s the college revamped its campus newsletter, ECC Updates, to focus on alumni; Issues of ECC Updates include short alumni updates, longer profiles of selected alumni, and essays written by alumni.

The current collection contains materials from 1981 to 1997. Materials may be added to this collection as they become available.
