To Build New Strengths: The Future of Clinton Community College, and of North Country Community College[PDF]
Clinton Community College and North Country Community College could explore deeper collaboration and other options for strengthening the educational services they provide across a sprawling region of Northern New York State, according to a new report from the Rockefeller Institute. The report was conducted at the request of New York State Sen. Elizabeth Little, whose district includes the two institutions. It examined a number of possible options for their future.

Every state offers community colleges as the first rung on the ladder of higher education. They prepare students for four-year colleges, educate key professions like nursing and firefighting, offer job training and basic skills, and bolster economic development. But a new report from the Rockefeller Institute finds that the 50 states differ widely in the extent to which they use their community college systems.
