The Munro Society is a distinguished society formed to recognize the significant support for students through endowments at Eastern Nazarene College. The philanthropic spirit of the members of the Munro Society fosters the establishment and growth of endowments, which support Christian higher education and the students Eastern Nazarene College was founded to serve.
Established in 1994, the Munro Society was named for Dean Bertha Munro - a woman permanently embedded in the campus and collective memories of the ENC community. Dean Munro gave of herself in many ways, serving in just about every capacity except the presidency of Eastern Nazarene College. She was brilliant, scholarly, dignified, compassionate, wise, gentle, and faithful to her God and His mission for her life.
Dean Munro is also known for saying, "There is no conflict between the best in education and the best in our Christian faith."
Many members attend the Munro Society annual lunch on the day of Commencement, where they are given the opportunity to welcome new members as well as hear students speak about how endowed scholarships have impacted their lives.
There is but one requirement to become a member of the Munro Society: endow or manage an endowed scholarship! For more information on how you can establish an endowed scholarship at ENC, see Endowment Information , or contact the Office of Development at 866.480.2291.
