Our urban Lawrence campus is growing rapidly, including a 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.
