College Profile: SUNY Westchester Community College
Westchester Community College was founded in 1946 as the New York State Institute of Applied Arts and Sciences in White Plains. In 1957, the County of Westchester bought the 360-acre John Hartford estate in Valhalla and designated 218 acres for the community college.
The mission of Westchester Community College is to provide high quality, affordable education to meet the career, transfer, basic preparatory, vocational, and recreational needs of the Westchester community. We are accessible, adaptable, dedicated to lifelong learning, and sensitive to the individual needs of our diverse population.
Westchester Community College's main campus is centrally located on 218 rolling, wooded acres in Valhalla, New York (approximately 45 minutes north of Manhattan). Attractive, contemporary and historic buildings set among the trees house library, computer, science, laboratory, classroom, theater, arts, child care, physical education, and administration facilities.
Westchester Community College is more than just the county’s largest educational institution. It is a living, breathing part of Westchester that goes beyond the influence of a typical college and affects the lives of all who enter its doors.
