NCC’s Applied Learning program has valuable impacts on the community, the college and especially the students. We want more students and faculty to get involved in Applied Learning. We believe that it is an important teaching and learning method that helps to build and strengthen communities while bringing the curriculum to life. Applied Learning has been embraced by Nassau Community College for several years. Its formalization came about with the creation of the Center for Service Learning in the fall of 2010. With SUNY’s mandate in May 2015, the Center for Service Learning was replaced to Center for Applied Learning. Several applied learning activities have occurred on campus.
