    As illustrated in the chart on right, student enrollment in the healthcare areas (Nursing, Radiology, Healthcare Management and Advocacy) make up more than 50% ofSVC's total student enrollment. It is likely this trend will continue. To meet the demands of increased student growth, the College has also increased faculty and staff,making it necessary to develop the new Healthcare Education Center (HEC). With this additional space, SVC can accommodate space demands in the Mansion and providea showcase area for its healthcare programs. --Dr. Albert DeCiccio, Provost


    The 21st century study in health sciences has found ahome in a refurbished downtown mill. This fall, theHealthcare Education Center relocated to downtownBenningtons Holden-Leonard Mill. Occupying half oftwo oors of one wing, the Center houses four large classrooms able to accommodate 6070 students perclass and smaller breakout rooms for 2025 students.

    The facility will be shared by Nursing and Radiologic Sciences majors. Often, classes will integrate studies inboth majors, one of the fastest growing segments of SVCscommunity. Today, Nursing and Radiologic Sciences students comprise 54% or nearly 300 students.

    From the Acting Presidents Desk: James E. Beckwith, J.D., L.L.M.


    The start of the new school year is a time to celebrate the growth and strength of our institution. It is also time to take pride in our

    achievements. The SVC community is strong and vibrant; students, faculty, alumni and supporters are united in their goal to forge a pre-eminent role for the College. We measure achievements by the milestoneswe meet and value the intangible successes achieved in the classroom, onthe playing elds and in the career goals of our graduates.

    In May, we sent o the largest graduating class in the schools nearly90-year history. They are launching careers across the globe and closer tohome in the elds of education, nance and health services. We welcomedover 550 scholars to our campus in September holding those same loftygoals. Applicants and admitted students grew by 15% and 10%, respectively, year over year. But the numbers are more than notches on aruler; they are proof that the SVC model is a successful one.

    In a way, SVC has so much to boast about this fall a new major in Biological Sciences, expanded faculty and new facilities. But it is so muchmore it is welcoming the generation of today and tomorrow.

    Sincerely yours, James E. Beckwith
