NORFOLK – Northeast Community College and Wayne State College have strengthened their working relationship with the signing of a new memorandum of agreement. The two colleges have had a long-standing working and transfer relationship to serve students since 1986. Over the years, various institutional and programmatic agreements have been signed to create a seamless transfer of pathways for students between Northeast and Wayne State College.
On Wednesday, Dr. Marysz Rames, president of Wayne State, Dr. Paul Turman, chancellor of the Nebraska State College System, and Mary Honke, co-interim president of Northeast, signed a memorandum of agreement that is intended to cultivate student transfer and advising efforts that are designed to create clear pathways to success from Northeast to Wayne State College degree completion.
The memorandum of agreement is designed to build on the collaboration between Northeast Community College and Wayne State College and the ten-year joint partnership through the College Center in South Sioux City. Both institutions offer classes in the 39,600 square foot building at 1001 College Way. Through the partnership, students from Northeast may take their freshman and sophomore level courses in business, elementary education and human services, followed by junior and senior level or graduate courses through Wayne State College, all in the same location at the College Center in South Sioux City.
