Jefferson Community College and St. John Fisher College are making it official.
The schools are signing a memorandum Monday to make St. John Fisher, Rochester, a higher-education partner of the community college, making it easier for students to obtain an educational doctorate in executive leadership.
Partner institutions currently offering classes in Watertown include Keuka College, SUNY Empire State College, State University of New York Potsdam and SUNY Upstate Medical University, a released statement said. Through the partnership with St. John Fisher College, Jefferson becomes one of only a handful of community colleges to provide a local venue/access for a doctoral program.
The signing will be at 10:30 a.m. in room E-130 in JCCs Extended Learning Center.
