FOR RELEASE: Immediate, Wednesday, June 4, 2014
Hudson Valley Community College will offer five college-level courses at the Capital South Campus Center (CSCC) when it opens in Albany’s South End this fall.
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 is one of a dozen partners who will offer training and education at the site. The college this fall plans to offer Basic Math with Study Skills (MATH 095), Business Concepts and Applications (BADM 100), Business Math (BADM 120) Introduction to Criminal Justice (CRJS 101) and Sociology (SOCL 100). Free drop-in child care will be available to students taking courses at the site.
The Capital District Educational Opportunity Center (EOC), which is also administered by the college, will offer its College Connections program at the site. College Connections helps EOC students decide on future goals and make the transition to college.
Hudson Valley will also continue to offer courses at its Albany Extension Center located at 175 Central Avenue this fall. The site also houses the college’s Pharmacy Technician training program, which is run by the Workforce Development Institute.

Founded in 1953, Hudson Valley Community College offers more than 75 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.
