Niagara County Community College will announce an upcoming partnership with Keuka College. President William J. Murabito, Ph.D., and Keuka College President Amy Storey will sign articulation agreements on Friday that will facilitate seamless transfer pathways for students enrolled in the human services A.A. program at NCCC to a social work B.S. program at Keuka College, as well as the NCCC health studies A.S. program to a community health and wellness B.S. program at Keuka College.
A press release stated, “These agreements are mutually beneficial arrangements that allow NCCC students to explore clearly defined pathways outlining how courses within a two-year program at NCCC will meet requirements that lead to a four-year degree at Keuka College.”
A representative from Keuka College is already recruiting for this program. The college plans to offer the B.S. in social work program on NCCC’s campus beginning in the fall of 2022, pending approval from New York state.
The press release stated, “Keuka College is the largest producer of Bachelor of Social Work degrees in New York state, and a continued relationship between NCCC and Keuka College could lead to other articulation agreements between the two institutions that ultimately benefit NCCC students. Discussions are already in the works about the possibility of linking NCCC’s health studies program to Keuka’s community health and wellness program.”
Assistant Vice President of Student Services Alissa Shugats-Cummings said, “NCCC has hundreds of established transfer pathways for students seeking admission to four-year institutions after they complete their degree program requirements here. This additional articulation agreement is one more way NCCC is helping to set its students up for success after the completion of their degree.”
