Northwest Community College is closing the Houston Learning Centre on June 30, 2017. This decision was not made lightly. Student enrollment in Houston has declined to the point where keeping the doors open is no longer economically viable.
“We know and appreciate the exceptional amount of work the staff, faculty and community have put in to make the Houston campus a success,” said NWCC President, Ken Burt. “We routinely hear of the terrific work our staff are doing there and are proud of their efforts.”
If opportunities for training present themselves in the region, NWCC officials are keen to work with the local school district or to use our Mobile Trades Training Unit to meet those needs.
“We are hopeful that in time, demand will return sufficiently to reopen the doors,” said Burt.
Northwest Community College’s human resources department is working with staff and their respective unions at the Houston campus to determine if other employment opportunities at other campuses may be available to them.
The closing date has been selected to ensure students at the campus will have completed their studies.
