NOC Partners with PTC and UC for biology class

Ponca City Now - September 16, 2019 9:04 am

Northern Oklahoma College, Pioneer Career Technology Center, and the University Center are partnering this fall to offer a biology class for college students in the Ponca City area.

Students can take a day or evening class with lecture offered by NOC via interactive television through the University Center and then enroll in a lab offered on site at Pioneer Tech.

“Students enrolled with NOC through the UC have had access to classrooms but not laboratories at the UC,” said NOC Vice President for Academic Affairs Dr. Pam Stinson.  “Through this partnership of three educational entities, students have gained access to a wider range of coursework and facilities to complete their degrees.”

Traci Thorpe, Pioneer Tech Superintendent, said “PTC is pleased to be able to make the lab classroom available in a partnership with NOC and the University Center. We all have a mission to offer high quality educational programs and services and are excited to offer this opportunity in our area.  This collaboration makes it easier for local students to achieve their future goals.”

University Center CEO Adam Leaming said “NOC and Pioneer Tech have once again proven that we will each do whatever is in our power to remove barriers for students to earn their degrees. The UC is optimistic more students will pursue their degree knowing this option has now become available.”

Dr. Stinson added that NOC is considering adding a Physical Science Lab for Spring 2020.
