Quote from the President

"Northeast Community College is dynamic and at the cutting edge of many initiatives. The McIntosh College of Nursing  houses Northeast and the University of Nebraska Medical Center nursing programs from basic nurse aide through master's degree. In addition, the College Center in South Sioux City has been designed to combine courses and programs from Northeast and Wayne State colleges which lead to certificates and diplomas in addition to associate, bachelor's, and master's degrees. A delegation from the college recently visited Beijing, China to sign a Memorandum of Understanding with the Beijing College of Vocational Agriculture to explore exchange opportunities for both students and faculty. Soon, Northeast will host a faculty exchange team from the Beijing College of Vocational Agriculture. A new course, Introduction to Community Leadership, was recently launched to help our students learn how to become effective community leaders. Northeast recently attended a Memorandum of Understanding signing ceremony at the United States Department of Agriculture headquarters. The memorandum encourages increased cooperation between USDA Rural Development and rural community colleges to develop partnerships and work together to strengthen rural economies."
