The collaboration that takes place throughout the Co-operative Management Education programs results in a unique online community. Together, community members enhance their management skills and gain a deep understanding of co-operatives and credit unions that they take back to their home credit unions and co-ops.

Students and graduates stay connected to each other and Saint Mary’s through the Co-operative Management Education Alumni and Student Co-operative (CMEASC) group. Their website provides a resource for current students and alumni and a way for them to keep in touch.
