About Us

Welcome to Niagara County Community College

Two unique locations, one strong community

Niagara County Community College (NCCC) has two locations in Western New York and online programs that are available anywhere. The Sanborn, NY campus is centrally located minutes from Buffalo and Niagara Falls. The academic divisions housed at this location include Arts, Humanities & Social Sciences; Business & STEM; and Nursing, Physical & Allied Health. The Niagara Falls Culinary Institute (NFCI) is located in the heart of downtown Niagara Falls, just steps from the world-famous Niagara Falls. This location is home to our Culinary Arts, Baking and Pastry Arts, and Hospitality programs. Both of our locations have a unique environment and provide a career-focused, success-oriented education at an affordable price.

Strategic Plan

Strategic Plan

At an All-College meeting in September 2019, the College community was invited to participate in the planning process and asked to begin sharing its ideas for a reimagined NCCC on its 60th anniversary in 2022—a strong, vibrant college with improved academic excellence, enhanced student enrichment opportunities, broader community and workforce engagement, and overall institutional sustainability and improvement.

With those four strategic goals in mind, the Strategic Planning Committee led a college-wide review and update of the College’s mission statement that progressed through the Student and Faculty Senates and ultimately to the Board of Trustees. The result of this extensive self-assessment of our mission and overall efforts to meet that mission is 60 Years Strong: NCCC Reimagined.
