Julie Dick is part of the team who has helped launch the University Center at Corning Community College. A partnership with Alfred University, the program is designed for students who want to earn a bachelor’s degree in Early Childhood/Childhood Education or a master’s degree in Literacy by attending classes held primarily on the CCC campus. Classes have reduced tuition, are taught by Alfred University professors, and Alfred University grants the degrees.
“It’s important to me that only excellent teachers leave CCC,” said Professor Dick. “We need teachers who were taught everything about the profession … the good, the bad, and the ugly … and still want to teach. Education and good schools are the answer to our economic challenges. I am honored to help CCC be a part of this process.”
