Conrado Gempesaw, Ph.D., St. John’s University President, and Dr. Thomas P. Dolan, Interim President of Nassau Community College (NCC), officially signed an Articulation Agreement between the two schools yesterday in Queens to broaden their academic partnership.

 Andre McKenzie, Ed.D., Vice Provost for Academic Support Services and Faculty Development, and Nancy Kaplan, Ed.D., Associate Provost for Academic Support Services who oversees the development of Community College partnerships, collaborated on this endeavor with NCC officials to seamlessly pull together all provisions for this capstone signing.

“This agreement is a perfect fit as we continue to strengthen our strategic priority of expanding global and community partnerships,” said Dr. Gempesaw. “Nassau Community College has a stellar reputation and we’re excited about the matriculation of students from Long Island to finish their studies with us at St. John’s in Queens in order to earn their undergraduate and graduate degrees.”
