Clinton Community College Receives Fifty Thousand Dollar Grant


Tuesday, October 25, 2005


The State University of New York has awarded Clinton Community College fifty thousand dollars for its Division for Continuing Education, Workforce Development, and Community Service.

Clinton Community College is one of only three colleges to receive the full amount of money requested.
Clinton Community College has received the full amount of money because of its excellent performance record. The money from the award is used to train businesses, in Clinton and Essex Counties, in specific areas. Just a few of the SUNY Workforce Development Training Programs for 2005-2006 include Conflict Management, Business Writing, Job Coaching, Team Building, Workplace Safety, and Managing Change. Executives as well as people in entry-level positions receive training.

“The impact of this grant is substantial in its benefits to area business and industry,” says David Lawliss, Dean of Continuing Education, Workforce Development, and Community Service at Clinton Community College. The amount of money a school is awarded is based on past performance. Last year the award money Clinton Community College received helped to train over four hundred individuals and fifty businesses. After the training programs, those who received business training provide feedback, and a final report is submitted to SUNY. The report covers the cost of the training, the number of individuals served, and the results of the training. Clinton Community College has collaborated with local agencies to help provide the trainers and make the training affordable. A few of the agencies Clinton Community College has collaborated with are the North Country Chamber of Commerce, the Workforce Investment Board, the Clinton County Department of Social Services, and the Joint Council for Economic Opportunity.

For more information regarding contract training please contact the Division for Continuing Education, Workforce Development, and Community Service at 562-4142.
