A Message from the President

Dr. Luis Pedraja

Dear Student,

Welcome to Quinsigamond Community College. I’m honored to be the College’s new President, and have made it our mission to provide the tools and support that you need to ensure your success. As a first generation college student, I understand the challenges that students (and their families) face when attending college. At Quinsigamond Community College you’ll find qualified admissions counselors and advisors ready to assist you throughout the enrollment process and help guide you in selecting career pathways that will lead to strong employment opportunities. Quinsigamond offers an array of support services that include accessible tutoring, counseling and academic advising, in addition to small class sizes and personalized attention.

We are committed to being in the communities we serve and have locations in Southbridge, Marlborough, Blackstone Valley and downtown Worcester. Our Healthcare and Workforce Development Center in downtown Worcester provides advanced simulation environments for a number of healthcare programs, as well as customizable training opportunities for individuals and businesses. On our main Campus in Worcester, the QuEST (Quinsigamond Engineering, Science, and Technology) Center, offers a state-of-the-art lab space, training facilities, and the only FAB Lab at a MA Community College that allows you to create and develop hands-on manufacturing or technology projects.

Quinsigamond offers over 120 degree and certificate programs, and hundreds of classes that are offered at convenient times to fit your schedule or are entirely available online. It’s never been easier or more affordable to attend QCC. 

Thank you for considering QCC for your higher education needs. I look forward to seeing you on campus soon and welcoming you.


Dr. Luis G. Pedraja
