Southeast Community College’s
Learning Center at York will be calling downtown York home when it moves into
its new location at 401 N. Lincoln Ave., on July 1, 2022. For the past six
years it’s been at the Holthus Convention Center. The new location will provide
more space for classes, computer labs and meeting rooms.
“The new location will
provide opportunity to serve more students to access lifelong educational
course offerings,” said Cinda Konken, Dean of Extended Learning. “SCC’s new
location will better serve the city of York and surrounding communities by
having a presence to be able to meet local business and industry needs.”
Diane Houdek of Dorchester is
the new coordinator of the Learning Center in York. She brings with her a vast
background in education, most recently as the school counselor at Dorchester
Public School. She has a bachelor’s degree in Education and a master’s degree
in School Counseling, both from the University of Nebraska Kearney.
Community College has a lot to offer to students and businesses,” Houdek said. “I
want to increase our outreach to let people know that whatever stage in life
they are at, Southeast Community College can provide opportunities for them to
learn, whether it be for a degree, certificate or just for fun.”
The Learning Center will
continue to renovate and unpack this summer until classes start in August.

The Learning Center at York opened six years ago as
part of a strategic plan to better serve the educational needs of the
communities in southeast Nebraska. The other learning centers are in Falls
City, Hebron, Nebraska City, Plattsmouth, and Wahoo.
