Higher Education Needs Assessment will benefit North Country residents

The Center for Community Studies at Jefferson Community College will conduct a Higher Education Needs Assessment survey on behalf of the State University of New York North Country Consortium and the Jefferson Higher Education Center beginning in mid-April.
The purpose of the survey is to hear from residents in Jefferson, northern Lewis, northern Oswego and western St. Lawrence counties regarding the bachelor and master's degrees they would like to see offered in the Watertown and Fort Drum areas.
In addition to examining the demand for various fields of study, the survey also will assess the best modes of delivery – such as classroom, online, independent study or hybrid learning – to best accommodate the needs of adult learners and will identify the services most critical to students’ success.
The SUNY Consortium and JHEC partner schools will then use this information to develop programs that will meet both the interests of students and the needs of the workforce.
The study will involve both telephonic and online surveying. JCC students working for the Center for Community Studies will make telephone calls over the next two weeks to more than 450 adults who recently completed college coursework, are currently working on college degrees, and/or are interested in beginning college studies in the near future.
Adults who are not contacted but who would like to participate in the survey may do so by visiting the following website:
