Nantucket Community College Petition

Click here to read the six-page project description


For Students:

           ●     Would you like to Get a Community College Degree without Leaving the Island?

           ●     Do you want to Gain Work Experience, Get Paid for It, and Earn College Credit?

You can enroll at Bristol Community College. You will earn an on-island Associate Degree by taking 3/4 of the courses remotely. The remaining 1/4 of courses, seminars, and roundtables will be offered on the island in face-to-face settings. Mentoring options will also be available.

During the summer season when the economy is at its peak, you will complete internships. You will receive college credit if you attend discussion roundtables to help you connect lessons learned in class with skills learned on the job and complete a term paper.

In addition to receiving compensation for your internships, you may apply for scholarships to help you with tuition and fees.

Please express your interest by signing the petition below.


For Local Supporters:

For parents, friends, business owners, working professionals, retirees, and summer residents:

           ●     Do you support the Nantucket Community College Initiative?

           ●     Would you like to teach a course, lead discussion roundtables, or mentor students?

We are also trying to identify individuals from the local community who are interested in teaching courses, leading seminars, facilitating roundtable discussions, and/or mentoring students in the program. Pedagogy workshops on teaching and learning as well as coaching sessions will be offered through Learning Ledgers. Instructors & mentors will need to be approved by Bristol Community College.
