Clinton Community College and CV-TEC Announce New Pathways

Plattsburgh, New York – Garry Douglas, President of the North Country Chamber of Commerce along with Dr. Mark Davey, District Superintendent, Champlain Valley Educational Services (CVES, CEWW BOCES) and Ray M. DiPasquale, President of Clinton Community College, are pleased to announce the establishment of a new articulation pathway in Nursing, and the reaffirmation of existing agreements between the two institutions.

These articulation agreements allow for students who complete specific fields of study and meet performance requirements at the Champlain Valley Technical Education and Careers Center (CV-TEC), the Career and Technical Education Division of CVES, to be granted advanced placement into corresponding programs of study at Clinton Community College. CV-TEC and Clinton Community College have had a long-standing affiliation and are excited to renew this partnership, as well as add the Nursing pathway. These agreements are a positive collaboration that will benefit many students in the county.

“We are thrilled about expanding our partnership with CV-TEC in the Nursing Program,” states President DiPasquale. “CV-TEC’s program is rigorous, and their students are well prepared for Clinton’s AAS program. It makes sense to streamline the pathway for those students.”

Dr. Davey adds, “CVES is a proud partner with Clinton Community College in strengthening our program articulation in Nursing and reconfirming our strong working relationship for all of our programs. Together, CV-TEC and Clinton Community College are providing better and expanded opportunities for our students and their workforce development.”

“Real partnership is required among our education and training partners to meet the needs of employers and to maximize the skills and future of both our young people and others seeking career advancement,” states Garry Douglas, President of the North Country Chamber of Commerce. “We applaud both Clinton Community College and CV-TEC for advancing their collaboration both in nursing and other fields, creating a stronger and easier pathway for hundreds of students.”

“The partnership between the CV-TEC and Clinton Community College will provide new training opportunities for North County students, accelerating their path into good-paying jobs in high demand,” said Assemblyman Billy Jones (D-Chateauguay). “Partnerships like this are making it easier for young adults to find good jobs and continue to call our region home.”
