Endicott College Opens Satellite Campus in Gloucester, MA
Site Will Host Undergraduate and Graduate Courses, Corporate Education, Workforce Development and Community Activities; Future Expansion Planned
Endicott College announced today that it will be opening a satellite campus in Gloucester, MA in September 2012. The College has leased 4,000 square feet of space at 33 Commercial Street which will be used for classroom, laboratory and administrative space. The College will take occupancy on June 1, 2012 and anticipates offering programs at the site by mid September.
The new location will allow the College to establish teaching/learning space for undergraduate and graduate courses, as well as corporate education, workforce development, and community activities in the Gloucester area. Undergraduate offerings are anticipated to include marine sciences, biotechnology, hospitality management, and the arts, as well as bachelor degree completion programs for adults. Graduate programs in business and education are planned at a later date. Finalization of program offerings will depend upon need and interest.
“We look forward to collaborating with Gloucester city officials, residents, and business leaders to provide educational leadership and innovative community activities on Cape Ann,” says Endicott College President Dr. Richard E. Wylie. “I began my teaching career in this city and have an enduring appreciation for Gloucester and its people.”
According to Gloucester’s Mayor Carolyn Kirk, “The City of Gloucester welcomes Endicott College with open arms. Endicott is a dynamic institution of higher learning, and having them as a community and educational partner will contribute greatly to Gloucester's renaissance."
Forward-looking plans for the new location include providing long and short term housing for students based in the Beverly campus, so they can live and work in the rich Gloucester environment. This addition will allow for intensive programs in painting, oral history, and marine science where students move from Beverly to Gloucester for a few weeks of intensive study then return to the main campus.
Dr. Wylie indicated that the Gloucester site will provide an “incredible opportunity for creative learning and unique delivery systems.”
Over the years Endicott has established campuses around the world in such locations as: Spain, Mexico, Switzerland, Bermuda and the Czech Republic, as well as more than 20 sites in Massachusetts and New England. The College also teaches courses on U.S. Coast Guard cutters along the eastern seaboard.
