LaGuardia Community College aims to educate and train 3,000 students over the next five years to become frontline healthcare professionals.
To that end, Councilmember Julie Won presented the school with a $5 million check this morning that will go toward upgrading and expanding the workforce training facilities at LaGuardia’s Long Island City campus. The $5 million includes an allocation of $3 million from Won and $2 million from City Council Speaker Adrienne Adams.
The investment will help the college expand its capacity to provide hands-on education and various programs that require specialized equipment and facilities, such as Nursing, Licensed Practical Nursing (LPN), Paramedic, EMT, and other healthcare fields.
