ABOUT GCC

Welcome to GCC

Greenfield Community College is located in the beautiful and historic Pioneer Valley of western Massachusetts, between the foothills of the Berkshire Mountains and the fertile farmland of the Connecticut River watershed. GCC is the smallest of the 15 community colleges in the Massachusetts higher education system, known for the caring and supportive attitude of the faculty and staff, academic excellence, and for the broad support it enjoys from the surrounding community.

We are accredited by the New England Association of Schools and Colleges, and we work closely with bachelor degree granting colleges of the Massachusetts public higher education system, including the University of Massachusetts, and with private colleges and universities, which enables us to offer diverse transfer opportunities to our students.

The career programs offered by the College prepare our students to enter the work force or update their skills, while credit-free workshops and seminars are offered for personal enrichment.

Day, evening and weekend classes are offered so that students who need a flexible academic schedule can be served.

Today, the annual fall enrollment of the College exceeds 3,000 students.

Institutional Statement on Inclusion

As an inclusive community, Greenfield Community College engages in intentional and ongoing reflection of diversity as we seek to create a culture that values, encourages, and embraces a wide range of individual and group differences.

Resolution of GCC Assembly, passed on December 7, 2009
