Crisis team formed at Corning Community College after programs unexpectedly dropped

Faculty at Corning Community College are forming an emergency task force in response to the college’s move to cut several programs.

The announcement comes after CCC said that at least five academic programs were being discontinued.

In a release from The Professional Educators of CCC (PECCC), Union President Ryan Hersha says the crisis committee will raise awareness about the consequences of the administration’s planned cuts. The group will also meet with community stakeholders to ensure a positive resolution to the crisis, according to WENY-TV.

The college noted that the reduction was part of a ‘realignment’ of various programs, which included Automotive programs, Early Childhood studies associates degree, Manufacturing Technology program, Health and Physical Education studies associate program, and Human Services associate in applied science.
