NECC Entered into Educational Agreement with Bellevue University
NORFOLK - Officials with Northeast Community College and Bellevue University entered into a memorandum of understanding to allow for students in Northeast's twenty county service area to take upper level undergraduate and graduate level college courses in northeast Nebraska. Bellevue University President Dr. Marry Hawkins said that this will allow for non-traditional students to achieve the higher level degrees
Dr. Hawkins: " and allowing students an easier path toward a bachelors degree and maybe a masters degree. Because certainly they're reaching out to us now but by having a presence here it will make it much more accessible and easy for students.
Dr. Michael Chipps, President of Northeast Community College, said that this agreement further expands the educational offering of the local community college
Dr. Chipps: "What we do is build all these things to develop a menu of different courses and programs that people can take to advance their educational opportunities. There are so many people in rural Nebraska who want a change to have an associate's degree, which is first and foremost, but to have a bachelors, masters, and eventually a PhD."
Northeast has similar agreements in place with Wayne State College and the University of Nebraska Medical Center.
