Brentwood: Legislator Stephanie Bontempi (Centerport) recently attended the Suffolk County Community College (SCCC) Board of Trustees Retreat at the Grant Campus on January 14th. The event provided a great opportunity for elected officials to meet with the Board of Trustees and other key players in the SCCC organization.
Various topics were covered during the opening of the retreat, ranging from the challenges associated with COVID-19 to the changing role of higher education in an increasingly high-tech world. The discussions made it clear that the role of community colleges, such as SCCC, will likely see some changes in the coming years to more effectively address those challenges and the needs of the workforce.
“As a former private elementary school teacher, I am aware of how important it is to match students with curriculums that fit their individual needs and goals. Fortunately, Suffolk County Community College has an extremely diverse set of course offerings and programs. Whether someone is aiming for a technical career, or something that requires education beyond an Associate’s degree, Suffolk Community provides the pathway,” said Bontempi.
