A Message from the Chancellor
Welcome to the Nunez Community College website!
As the new chancellor, I am very excited to serve Nunez Community College and our community by expanding on the great work already happening at our institution! As a native of St. Bernard, I am proud to return home with an unwavering commitment to our students’ success! It is my honor and privilege to build on the legacy of a welcoming learning environment and a campus culture that prioritizes quality education and training.
Our College was established in 1992, and my affiliation with Nunez Community College began in 1999 when I joined the ranks as a faculty member. That year was also significant in that it coincided with the establishment of the Louisiana Community & Technical College System (LCTCS), with Nunez as one of its constituent colleges. My own education and work continued at several institutions across southeast Louisiana, but I am happy to be back at Nunez to finish my career!
As a comprehensive community college, Nunez offers both transfer and terminal career & technical programs, as well as customized training to meet our mission of providing academic opportunities and workforce development. We are committed to facilitating our students’ personal and professional success, building our local and regional workforce, and serving our communities as an economic driver.
Nunez partners with nearly 50 area businesses to provide industry-driven curriculum and programs, as well as four-year colleges and universities to insure seamless transfer of credit and program pathways. I encourage you to keep your eyes on Nunez as we strive to deliver and develop the latest, cutting-edge technology; ultra-modern training facilities; and innovative learning options!
Currently, the college is forging an exciting partnership with The Boeing Company to develop an Aerospace Technology program that opens the door to new STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) opportunities. Research supports that education and training in STEM is tied to high demand, high wage occupations. This is just one example of the exciting opportunities that exist as a result of partnerships and investments made by business and industry, our state and our college! I hope you will find the information you are seeking on our website, but we would be delighted even more to have you visit our campus in Chalmette, Louisiana to see for yourself what makes Nunez so special and to see why we are "…Changing Minds!”.
