Mission Marieb. Mission Success!

Mission: Marieb

Mission: Success

Dr. Elaine Marieb gave us a challenge to secure donations from 1,000  donors - we exceeded that with over 1,200 individuals helping us reach our fundraising goal. On Tuesday, June 24, 2014, Dr. Marieb visited the college and celebrated the success of this mission and her $1 million donation to the campaign with the campus community. Thanks to her donation and the donations of so many others, the campaign surpassed the $5.3 million goal and has now reached the $5.5 million mark. The campaign is still accepting donations to fund the two new centers of excellence at Holyoke Community College:

  1. The Center for Health Education at 404 Jarvis Ave., future home of HCC's Nursing and Radiological Technology programs, will contain the HCC SIMuCENTER, equipped with sophisticated maternity, newborn, pediatric and geriatric patient simulators and a mock X-ray room with digital equipment.
  2. The Center for Life Sciences, located in the Marieb Building, will contain 13,000 square feet of upgraded and accessible laboratories, the only clean room for student training in Western Massachusetts, as well as state-of-the-art classrooms.
