The College of New Rochelle celebrated the expansion of its Rosa Parks Campus in Harlem during a Nov. 29 ribbon-cutting ceremony at the campus’ new location at 313 W. 125th St.
Classes at the new site began last January. The college now offers nursing degree programs at the Harlem campus for the first time through its School of Nursing and Healthcare Professionals. It continues to offer its signature adult learner degree program toward a bachelor’s degree in liberal arts through its School of New Resources. The renovated, five-story building houses the campus offices and classrooms on the second to fifth floors. The ribbon-cutting occurred two days before the anniversary of Rosa Parks’ courageous stand for civil rights when she refused to give up her seat on a public bus on Dec. 1, 1955.
