FOR RELEASE: Immediate, Friday, September 18, 2015
This semester the college will hold off-campus courses at the Capital South Campus Center for the first time.
Two classes with a total of 20 students are running at the site starting this week - Sociology on Wednesday nights and Real World Math on Saturday mornings. Classes run through Dec. 18.
The new 17,500 square foot educational campus center, located at 20 Warren Street, was made possible thanks to a nearly $5 million grant from the United States Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD). The grant partners, Trinity Alliance and the Albany Housing Authority, envision the site as a multi-purpose hub for education, youth programs and community services in the city’s South End neighborhood.
Hudson Valley Community College is one of a dozen partners who will offer training and education at the site. The college also offers courses at six off-campus locations around the Capital Region.
For more information about the courses being offered and to register for upcoming classes at the Capital South Campus Center, contact the Office of Continuing Education, Summer Sessions and Workforce Development.
Founded in 1953, Hudson Valley Community College offers more than 80 degree and certificate programs in four schools: Business; Engineering and Industrial Technologies; Health Science; and Liberal Arts and Sciences; and an Educational Opportunity Center for academic and career training. One of 30 community colleges in the State University of New York system, it has an enrollment of more than 12,000 students, and is known as a leader in distance learning initiatives and workforce training.
