Northern Pennsylvania Regional College’s (NPRC) fall 2018 semester is underway, and the substantial growth in enrollment, staff, and available courses brought Erie’s local news feeds, GoErie.com and YourErie.com, wanting to know more.
On September 14, 2018, the inauguration of NPRC’s first president took place. State officials, education leaders, and community members gathered in Warren, PA to establish traditions and celebrate the accomplishments NPRC has achieved since opening in May 2017.
YourErieNow.com discusses how NPRC makes the convenience of education a top priority. With a video provided, ErieNow speaks with a few pioneers involved in this model’s execution and describes NPRC as an alternative approach for postsecondary education that complements, not competes with, existing community colleges and institutions.
Additionally, GoErie.com expands on the success NPRC has received over the last 16 months. The article discusses the immense growth NPRC has seen in enrolled students and staff. New academic and technical training courses, to go along with the already popular dual-enrollment programs, are offered each term; and coupled with the use of classroom locations in local communities, NPRC has a cost per credit more than $400 less than the national average. GoErie provides the planned expansion of programs for 2019 – A new associate degree in applied technology with specific concentrations determined by community needs – and defines other professional and continuing education options being discussed by NPRC.
