LDCC, NSU to Sign Agreement

Tuesday, May 30, 2017 at Louisiana Delta Community College-Monroe Campus at 10 a.m. in the Conference Center, LDCC and Northwestern State University (NSU) will enter an agreement which benefits manufacturing students and forensic science students. This agreement will allow Certification for Manufacturing (C4M) students, who complete LDCC's program, to receive seven hours of credit in NSU's Bachelors of Science in Engineering Technology program. 

According to local manufacturers who make up LDCC's Advisory Committee, the Certification 4 Manufacturing program’s curriculum has “meat on the bone." "Because of industry’s input, LDCC has also embedded relevant industry certifications and credentials into the program that further enhance our students’ employability, explains Dean Baugh, Director of Workforce Development at LDCC. "The LDCC-DeltaWorks team is passionate about delivering work-ready graduates." Regarding the actual agreement, Baugh says, "This articulation agreement is critical in continuing to position LDCC as the advanced manufacturing training hub of Northeast LA and providing Northeast LA with an educated and skilled workforce."

C4M students are not the only benefactors that will come by way of NSU's visit to LDCC's Monroe campus. Completers of the Associate of Applied Science in Forensic Science at LDCC will be able to transfer credits towards NSU's Bachelor of Science in Biology with a Forensic Science Concentration.

It's extremely important that we provide students with flexible pathways to get them where they want to go, explains Dennis Epps, Interim Chancellor for LDCC. "Therefore, the best path forward is in higher education institutions working together to provide seamless transitions from one institution to another. It's all about serving the students"
