For the Fall, under the guidance of State and County officials, and placing health and safety first, NCC will provide the majority of courses that can be instructed remotely or online in the following format. Courses that have critical components and require face-to-face instruction, including classes with lab components that cannot easily be replicated remotely, will be instructed on-campus in a face-to-face format following appropriate health and safety guidelines and procedures to maintain the safety of the NCC community.

Sexual Assault and Bystander Intervention: My Personal Story
In the summer of 2017, Malverne, Long Island College junior Kyle Richard was at a party when he heard a sexual assault in progress. Battering down the bathroom door, he rescued a woman from an attempted rape. Kyle was shot three times as he attempted to subdue the perpetrator. Fortunately, he overcame his injuries and returned to SUNY Cortland, where he is captain of its football team. In addition to being a college student, he speaks about sexual violence and standing up for what is right: “This stuff is happening every day … hopefully, my generation is the generation that really puts into perspective how much this has to change.” Kyle has received the NFL-sponsored Joe Biden Courage Award and the 2018 Capital One Orange Bowl FWAA Courage Award.
