ABOUT NECC: Northern Essex Community College serves approximately 6,000 credit students each semester on two campuses located in the beautiful, historic Merrimack Valley region of northeast Massachusetts. Our suburban Haverhill campus sits on 106 acres near Kenoza Lake and features a new Technology Center and an award-winning Student One-Stop Center. Our urban Lawrence campus is growing rapidly, including a new Health Technologies Center and additional leased space at Riverwalk Properties. Both campuses are a short drive to Boston and to the beaches and state parks along the coast.
NECC has been building an organizational culture that prizes initiative and innovation, and seeks to identify and develop the strengths in students, faculty, staff, and programs in order to grow and improve. We are also committed to the recruitment and retention of a diverse workforce that reflects the communities we serve. Our Lawrence campus was the first college in New England designated as a Hispanic Serving Institution by the U.S. Department of Education. We have significantly increased the diversity of our faculty over the last ten years, and are one of four Massachusetts colleges participating in the national achieving the Dream initiative, which aims to improve success for low-income students and students of color at community colleges.
ABOUT EARLY COLLEGE: NECC is working to refine a sustainable and inclusive early college model for secondary schools and students in the Merrimack Valley. The vision of the NECC Early College Program is to break down barriers for under-represented groups to participate in college. NECC with its partners seeks to create career-focused pathways to support all secondary students including those under-represented students (economically disadvantaged, first generation to attend college, non-traditional genders in careers) through the completion of community college.
