Northern Essex Community College, with campuses in Haverhill

first Hispanic Serving Institution in 2001. We serve approximately

5,000 students each semester in the beautiful, historic Merrimack

Valley region of northeast Massachusetts.

Our suburban Haverhill campus sits on over a hundred pastoral

acres near Kenoza Lake and features the David Hartleb Technology

and more than $20 million in recent classroom and student area


Our urban Lawrence campus is centered around the new, stateof-

the-art $27 million El Hefni Health and Technology Center, as

well as the recently renovated Dimitry classroom building, the

Haffner-Fournier Education Center, and “The Hub,” home to our

resorts in Maine and New Hampshire.

student success, wherever they exist.

as a leader college with Achieving the Dream; in our work using

Appreciative Inquiry for planning; and in the recent successful
