Dear Gateway Community College Student,
It is my great pleasure to welcome you to Gateway Community College (GCC). We are proud of our diverse student-body, and we strive to create a learning environment that is based on mutual respect and the conviction that an open minded exchange of ideas across culture, race, gender and age differences enriches the learning experience.
Please consider this College Catalog a vital resource as you navigate your course of study and college life at GCC. Within this document you will find the requirements and expectations for our academic programs and courses, accreditation information, our college policies and procedures, and a wealth of other information that will make your experience at GCC as productive and successful as possible. The College Catalog is also our ‘contract’ with you, as it also outlines the college’s responsibilities and obligations to you.
I hope that you will enrich your time at GCC with the many activities and extra-curricular opportunities available to you both on campus and in our community. Gateway Community College boasts an active Student Life, with numerous student-led clubs and activities, and our students have the benefit of studying in one of the nation’s most prominent college towns, with access to lectures, museums, theaters and cultural events, all within walking distance.
Whatever your educational goals–whether to earn an Associate degree, transfer to a four-year college or to gain the skill set that will prepare you for a new career–I want to assure you that you are under the guidance of an expert, highly respected faculty and dedicated staff and administrators who are deeply committed to your academic and professional success.
I wish you the very best during your time at Gateway Community College.
William T. Brown, Ph.D.
