Mission

The Ranken Technical College Alumni Association is committed to supporting the interests of Ranken Technical College, its alumni, and its current and future students through the development of mutually beneficial relationships in a lifelong affiliation that will enhance the image, quality, and reputation of the College in the spirit of unity and loyalty.

About Us

While most of our graduates reside in Missouri (61%) and Illinois (32%), Ranken alumni are spread out throughout the country making their homes in 49 of the 50 states. Since adding Walker Hall and Residential Life, as well as our rapidly-growing new location in Wentzville, we expect these numbers to grow each year.

Ranken graduates are the backbone of St. Louis’ cutting-edge technical workforce, from architecture to automotive, to carpentry, maintenance and plumbing. If it was designed, built or installed in St. Louis, a Ranken graduate was probably involved in the process.

Leadership

The Alumni Association is governed by the Alumni Leadership Council, a voluntary council formed to provide leadership to the College’s 17,000+ alumni. This Council is responsible for advice and insight as to what services and activities are desired by Ranken graduates. The time commitment is minimal, but the effect is long-lasting as well as helpful in planning, and important in implementing programs to meet all graduates interests and needs.

Each department is represented on the Council so that all alumni have a voice.  Positions become available from time to time and needs change from year to year. Current seats to fill are: Heating and Cooling, Control Systems Technology and Industrial Technology
