Greenfield Community College seeks a president to assume leadership of Franklin County's only institution of higher education, upon the retirement of Dr. Robert L. Pura after seventeen years of service
Welcome to GCC
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.
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.
