The Northeast College of Health Sciences Board of Trustees held its Winter 2023 meeting on March 3, welcoming trustees both virtually and in-person at the College’s Seneca Falls Campus.

During the Board meeting, trustees heard reports and shared thoughts on the College's emerging 2023-2028 strategic plan. After receiving an update on the College’s recent strategic SWOT analysis that solicited Northeast community members’ reflections on the perceived strengths, weaknesses, opportunities and threats of the College, the Board discussed further development of the plan for its Fall 2023 launch.

In addition, Board divisional subcommittees received reports from the College's Faculty Senate and Student Government Association (SGA). Dr. Ilija Arar, chair of Northeast College’s Principles of Healthcare Practice Department, spoke as head of Faculty Senate, and SGA Executive President Conner Buttry (D.C. ’24) spoke on behalf of the student group.
