President's Message

President Cook standing with hands in pockets

Allow me to offer a warm and enthusiastic welcome to Springfield Technical Community College.

As STCC begins our 54th year in unprecedented fashion, I encourage resolve from all corners of the college because it is together that we live our vital mission of helping students transform their lives.  The college remains a special and essential institution in Western Massachusetts, with exceptional programs that matter to families, communities, and employers. We continue to be a leader in many areas that include allied health, manufacturing, engineering, and information technology. With our status as the only technical community college in Massachusetts, we offer a truly unique array of programs including seamless and affordable transfer opportunities. I invite you to learn more about how our dedicated faculty and staff are supporting students who #STCC To Their Plan.  Whether you are a new or returning student, a parent or partner, a proud alum, or an invested community member, you know the importance of “technical” and “community” in our name. As a federally designated Hispanic Serving Institution; as a collaborator with area employers; as a partner with our sister institutions; and as the only community college in the Commonwealth co-located with the National Park Service, we are excited for the year ahead, even as we contend with the impact of COVID-19.

Please stay safe, take good care, and reach out to us so we can learn more about your educational goals.

Sincerely,
John B. Cook, Ph.D.
President
