Message from the President

Nash Community College intentionally creates a “student ready” learning environment aimed at ultimately preparing graduates for meaningful careers. Committed to graduating every student there are no reserved services. Assistance is provided to students demonstrated by success investments including over a dozen tutoring programs, embedded peers, and advanced classroom technologies. The College does not have a department or group of students receiving exclusive attention. Nash Community College provides “all in” college, that is what Blue Love is all about. It only takes a visit to campus to see the Blue Love difference. This is reflected in Nash Community College’s customer service and being one of two National Demonstration Sites for Advancement Via Individual Determination (AVID) High Education (AHE). Blue Love is an attitude and AVID is the mechanism establishing a framework of continuous improvement in the classroom and across campus.

The advances in technology have made college catalogs seem less important. Yes, colleges have chosen to limit print versions or even eliminate printed copies. The catalog, no matter how the information is distributed, is an important vehicle. Contained in the “pages” are the essentials about people, programs, and services that describes NCC. As a prospective student take some time to examine the contents. The information identifies qualifications, but it is the care and people that form the fabric of a learning community. “Choosing Nash” is the right decision, backed up by national awards, statewide recognition, and graduates with distinguished careers.

Nash Community College has experienced tremendous growth and expansion. County and State voters have supported two bond referendums allowing Nash Community College to open the Continuing Education and Public Services Building. Plans are underway to construct an Engineering and Advanced Manufacturing Building and to launch a Veterinary Technology program. It truly is a good time to consider Nash.

The core premise of the “Open Door” mission is the promise to meet students no matter the level of preparation or standing. Whether planning for transfer or pursuing a career after graduation, Nash Community College will always be committed to students and lifelong learning.
