POST #489
Northern Essex Community College serves more than 6,000 students each semester on two campuses located in the beautiful, historic Merrimack Valley region of northeast Massachusetts. Our suburban Haverhill campus sits on 106 acres near Kenoza Lake and features a new Technology Center and an award-winning Student One-Stop Center. Our urban Lawrence campus occupies a 68,000 square foot facility in the heart of downtown, where we are also planning to construct a new Health Technologies Center. Both campuses are a short drive to Boston and to the beaches and state parks along the coast.

NECC has been building an organizational culture that prizes initiative and innovation, and seeks to identify and develop the strengths in students, faculty, staff, and programs in order to grow and improve. We are also committed to using evidence to guide our planning and decision-making. These values are reflected in our recent work using Appreciative Inquiry to develop a three-year strategic plan for the college, and in our investment in Process Management, the use of quality tools to continually improve programs and services for our students and community.

We are also committed to the recruitment and retention of a diverse workforce that reflects the communities we serve. We are an affiliate of the National Coalition Building Institute, and our Lawrence campus is the only college in New England designated as a Hispanic Serving Institution by the U.S. Department of Education. We have significantly increased the diversity of our faculty over the last five years, and are one of four Massachusetts colleges participating in the national Achieving the Dream initiative, which aims to improve success for low-income students and students of color at community colleges.

We are seeking faculty who are committed to the community college mission, actively engaged in promoting diversity, and prepared to use their unique strengths to experiment and innovate in the name of student success.
