A Message From the President

April 1, 2014

On behalf of the trustees, faculty and staff, I welcome you to Mount Wachusett Community College.

As we continue our second half-century as a community college, we look forward to continuing to provide residents of North Central Massachusetts – and beyond – with the knowledge, skills and resources that will help them achieve their academic and professional goals.

Since 1963, MWCC has provided open access to quality, affordable higher education to learners of all ages. Much has transpired over the past five decades, yet the same vision our founding leaders exhibited remains embedded in our mission to serve our students and communities in the 21st century.

Whether you are interested in earning an associate degree, transferring to a private or public college or university for a bachelor’s degree, updating your career skills or taking enrichment courses for fun, you will find a variety of options available to you at our main campus in Gardner, satellite campuses in Devens, Leominster, and Fitchburg, as well as online. You’ll learn from dynamic, dedicated faculty and receive individualized attention in the classroom and through a wide variety of student services.

Over the past 27 years as president of Mount Wachusett, I have had the honor of witnessing thousands of students pursue and achieve their academic goals and bring their dreams to reality. Now, throughout our region, countless alumni are serving the community in the fields of business, health care, education, technology, public safety, and numerous other professions. At MWCC, your success is our success!

Daniel M. Asquino, Ph.D.

President
