CCC Studies Four-Day Academic Schedule


Tuesday, July 22, 2008


 

Plattsburgh, NY – Clinton Community College has been reviewing what an optional four-day academic schedule for the college would look like. As with other schools and colleges around the state and country, the high cost of gas and rising energy prices has prompted administrators to review what options, if any, might be available to them.

In an effort to gain greater insight into how students are impacted by the current situation, members of the college staff plan to discuss the four-day option with this fall’s incoming student population. The feedback received from the students, along with the scheduling data and input from faculty and staff being gathered by the college, should provide a global view of the situation and allow the college to make an informed decision for the future.

In order to promote efficiency and keep costs down, CCC’s administration plans to consider what energy saving options may be available to the college, including the four-day academic schedule. Any changes in the college schedule would be communicated prior to going into effect. To date, no changes to the CCC academic schedule have been made.

Clinton Community College is a residential college of approximately 2200 students located on historic Bluff Point 2 miles south of the City of Plattsburgh. Clinton is an affirmative action/equal opportunity employer committed to recruiting, supporting, and fostering a diverse community of outstanding faculty, staff and students.
