NICC Waukon Center invites general public to open house this Friday

Northeast Iowa Community College (NICC) welcomes community members to attend an open house at the Waukon Center, located at 1220 Third Avenue NW, Friday, October 17 from 8:30-10 a.m. Community members may tour the center and learn more about NICC credit programs and continuing education courses.
Each year, hundreds of adult students enroll in credit courses, adult education and literacy, English Speakers of Other Languages, high school equivalency diploma classes, and NICC Business and Community Solutions continuing education.
The open house event provides an opportunity for the community to meet new center director Erica Nosbisch of Waukon. Nosbisch is a 2003 Waukon High School graduate and earned her bachelor’s degree in Business Administration and Public Relations from Coe College in 2007, graduating magna cum laude. After graduating from Coe, Nosbisch earned her master’s degree in Business Administration from the University of Iowa in 2013 and graduated with distinction. Nosbisch began her position as center director in July of this year.
“I’m excited about my new position at the NICC Waukon Center and am looking forward to our open house October 17. This is an opportunity for the community to see the center and learn more about the many services we offer to the Waukon area,” Nosbisch said.
The Waukon Center opened in 2008 as an educational, workforce training and academic resource for the community through a partnership between NICC, Allamakee Community School District and the City of Waukon. The Waukon Center also serves as a pivotal point between NICC offerings and services, credit and non-credit students, the local workforce and community initiatives and needs.
Many community members take advantage of services and programs offered at the center. From 2012-2013, 110 Allamakee High School students enrolled in NICC college credit classes at the Waukon Center, saving their families an estimated $466,873 in tuition. During that time, 213 Business and Community Solutions students registered for 302 non-credit courses in the areas of career development, computer technology, healthcare and life and leisure.
