Empowering our Communities through Education
As part of the 2015-2019 Strategic Plan, SCC is expanding program and continuing education opportunities by establishing new learning centers across the 15‐county service area.
After careful study of demographic and population statistics, it was determined that learning centers should be located to ensure SCC meets the needs of as many individuals as possible within its 15‐county service area; that those service areas should be within or near the largest cities, excluding the cities where SCC already has a campus; the location of learning centers should be geographically distributed across the service area to maximize the number of individuals living within a 35 mile radius from the center; and that programming offered at each center will depend on industry and community needs.
Therefore, learning centers are being established in Falls City, Hebron, Nebraska City, Plattsmouth, Wahoo, and York.
The mission of SCC is to empower and transform its students and the diverse communities it serves. Goal 1 of the Strategic Plan, which focuses on enrollment and growth, clearly supports the mission. It states, “Promote access to career and technical, academic transfer, and continuing education programs through proactive enrollment, student support, and program growth based on student, employer, and community demand.”
Furthermore, Objective 1.3 states, “Expand program and continuing education opportunities (i.e., satellites and/or learning centers) based on community and employer needs.”
This is a very exciting time for Southeast Community College as it establishes a new transformational direction to meet the current and future higher education needs of southeast Nebraska.
