"This is the saddest day in the 50 year history of UCC. Our hearts go out to every student, every employee, and every family touched by this tragedy.
"I want to thank all of our friends and neighbors who have dropped everything to help us. Over the next weeks, we will come together to accept offers of help and care so that we can assist one another."
-Dr. Rita Cavin
UCC Interim President

Its primary purpose is to provide opportunities for individuals, corporations, foundations and other groups to support the educational programs of the College. The Foundation provides scholarships, short term loans, staff development, capital improvements and other benefits for UCC.
UCC’s academic atmosphere, professional societies & clubs and recreational programs offer students a well-rounded college experience. Our accessible faculty leads to future student success.
