LEEDing the Way to Change
Early-bird registration deadline.
In 2012, Gateway Community College (GCC) celebrated the official opening of its new downtown New Haven campus with an August 29 ribbon-cutting attended by hundreds of stakeholders, including politicians, donors, officials from higher education, faculty, staff, members of the community, and most importantly—GCC students. That day represented over a decade of persistence and leadership spearheaded by the college’s president, Dorsey L. Kendrick, to provide a high-quality educational experience for all students in the New Haven region. This state-of-the-art urban campus was realized through a culmination of effort, advocacy, planning, and rigorous negotiations. The result is a college campus that is not only conducive to learning, but exists as an integral thread of the downtown New Haven landscape.
