Now we face a challenge: we find that our facilities and resources are no longer sufficient to meet the demand. Much like the region, WNCC needs to grow. But it's not just our buildings and facilities that need to expand. We also need to do more to support our students and programs. In short, it's time to expand the possibilities here at Western Nebraska Community College.
We will demonstrate how we will achieve these goals in the following pages. But we can't do all of this alone. Public funding, the traditional mainstay of our support, varies from year to year, sometimes greatly. As a result, we can no longer rely on public dollars alone. Like other community colleges, we must increasingly turn to private support to keep tuition low and help the college meet its mission. In response, we are seeking to expand the areas of workforce success, student success, and community enrichment.
What We Do
We offer possibilities for local employers, who look to us for workers who are ready to succeed - or for training programs that will keep their businesses competitive. WNCC understands the region's opportunities and challenges, and is commited to working for all of the residents of the Panhandle. The years ahead offer ways in which the region can remain a vibrant and welcoming place for new residents and existing students to live, work, and grow their families.
WNCC has accomplished a significant amount in recent years, but there is much more to do. We want to work with you to build upon the strengths of our three campuses, the work ethic of Panhandle residents, and to meet the demands of a growing and changing workforce throughout our service area.
Who We Are
For nearly 90 years, Western Nebraska Community College has offered possibilities for our students, the regional business community, and other partners throughout our 12 1/2 county service area.
We offer possibilities for those looking to make a change for the better - to learn new skills, to earn an associate's degree in one of today's high-demand fields, or to begin the path toward an advanced degree. Today, we train the next generation of workers for the Panhandle at our three campus centers in our nearly 90 degree and certificate programs.
