Summer 2022 Update

Crossing the finish line

With warmer weather and celebrations all around, we’re proud to have made it through another year of giving students the extra push they need to graduate. In this update, we wish to share some highlights from the past few months that address program needs, assist with rising costs of living, expand support for equity-deserving students, create new legacies, provide unique learning opportunities and wrap up NSCC’s 25th anniversary year.

Thank you for your continued partnership and commitment to making a difference for students at NSCC. Donors and supporters like you make access to education and graduating a reality, not just a dream, for NSCC students.
