How Does COD Referendum Impact the MAC?

On November 2 , College of DuPage will ask the voters of District 502 for permission to extend its bonding authority in the amount of 168 million dollars. A portion of that money would be earmarked for the renovation and refurbishment of the McAninch Arts Center.

We think that friends of the MAC should understand what we would do with approximately 22 million dollars.
  • Replace a 25-year old roof and HVAC system
  • Refurbish the Mainstage
    o Replace 25 year old seating,
    o Improve acoustics,
    o Become more Americans With Disabilities Act (ADA) compliant
  • Renovate Photography and Motion Picture/ Television instructional areas to match technology and program demand
  • Update existing classrooms with smart technology
  • Renovate existing space into dedicated dance and theatre rehearsal rooms
  • Address general storage and classroom issues resulting from twenty years of program growth

In short we will take care of a building that is committed to artistic and cultural pursuits.

The College recently updated its Facility Master Plan which is available at
