Civic Action Plan
Civic Action Plan 2017-2020
In March of 2016, President Lane Glenn signed onto Campus Compact’s 30th Anniversary Action Statement of Presidents and Chancellors reaffirming Northern Essex Community College’s dedication to civic engagement. As part of this commitment, NECC pledged to create a campus Civic Action Plan documenting the action steps and expected impact. NECC agreed to make this plan public, along with the assessment of its progress.
Northern Essex Community College strives to create an environment that supports and encourages civic engagement among our students, faculty, staff, and as an institution. NECC’s Civic Action plan embraces this vision by preparing our students to be active, informed citizens; by empowering the NECC community to pursue partnerships to benefit local and global communities; and to institutionally contribute to the health and strength of our local communities. This plan will help NECC live out its mission “to educate and inspire our students to succeed” and “to create vibrant and innovative opportunities that encourage excellence and enhance the cultural and economic life of our region.”
