Gateway Community College
Education & Training
Currently the largest of Connecticut's state community colleges, Gateway Community College (GCC) serves the residents and businesses of the Greater New Haven region with innovative educational programming and relevant social and cultural opportunities. Each year, more than 14,000 individuals choose from over 90 accredited degree and certificate programs, which they take for college credit, professional development, and personal enrichment. The college awards associate degrees and certificates in academic programs that transfer to four-year universities, along with career-track programs in engineering and automotive technologies, technical studies, health care, and business.
College offerings are strengthened by community partnerships with area organizations and businesses that support programming, and provide internships and community engagement opportunities for GCC students. Gateway's Resource Education and Training (GREAT) Center serves the community with short-term workforce training and professional development through partnerships with state and federal government agencies. The college also has the support of the Gateway Community College Foundation, Inc., which provides scholarships for students, and professional development grants for faculty and staff.
