The Calvin Duncan Society

This is my College - this is my Promise

The Calvin Duncan Society (CDS) is a distinctive and powerful Maryville College Alumni group. Formed by the Class of 2002, the CDS is open to all alumni concerned about the future health of their Alma Mater and the appreciation of their Maryville College diplomas over time. To join the CDS, alumni are asked to make a promise to make a gift of some amount each and every year. It really is that easy!

The CDS is the first lifetime annual promise program of its kind at any institution in the United States.

Mission Statement

Valuing the Maryville College liberal arts education, the importance of alumni to the life and health of the College, the concept of giving back to enrich the Maryville College experience for future students, and the continued appreciation of the Maryville College diploma, the Class of 2002 founded and installed the first members of the Calvin Duncan Society.

In support of these values, Calvin Duncan Society Members make the solemn promise of an annual and ongoing charitable commitment to our College with the aim of increasing the alumni giving percentage and the total amount of support generated by alumni.
