The mission of the Dimitry Academic Center is to provide Business and Accounting,  Professional Studies, and Liberal Arts students who are studying in Lawrence with a sense of belonging at NECC. The Center offers greater access to faculty and professional advisors, and a welcoming place to meet with classmates, use a computer, print an assignment, attend a program-specific seminar, or learn about transfer opportunities. Students who are undecided about their major and those taking ESL (English as a Second Language) classes in Lawrence are invited to use the center to connect with fellow students as well as faculty and staff as they explore their career options.


You can find us in room L200 on the second floor of the Dimitry Building, 45 Franklin Street in Lawrence.  Please stop by!
