The Mississippi Association of Community and Junior Colleges (MACJC) represents the collective interests of Mississippi’s fifteen public two-year colleges. This Association was chartered, in part, to provide a framework for the development and administration of policies and procedures related to the governance of student activities at the various institutions.
It is the belief of the MACJC membership that a well-rounded program of student activities greatly enhances the total development of the individual student and promotes the fulfillment of the purpose of the various institutions. The benefits of such activities prepare students through the development of discipline, teamwork, sportsmanship, fair play and other virtues essential to success in life.
The Association supports the wholesome benefits of inter-school competition in athletics and other student activities. Through this shared vision of the institutional and collective benefits of a progressive program of student activities, the MACJC seeks to offer competitive programs that are established and maintained based on a high standard of ethics and fair play.
It is the mission of the MACJC to foster a state program of intercollegiate activities in an environment that supports equitable opportunities consistent with the educational objectives of member colleges.
