Director's Welcome

Christina AlvesAs Associate Dean of Early College Access, it is my pleasure to welcome you to our website.  I have been engaged with early college work for over a decade, first as a resource specialist working directly with students, and now as an administrator working to ensure the longevity of unique early college education opportunities.  I have worked in higher education at the community college level for close to twenty years using my passion, experiences and knowledge to empower students to develop as individuals and future leaders.

The Office of Early College Access is committed to helping all students achieve their goals by transforming them into lifelong learners.  Under the guidance of resource specialists, as well as a caring team of instructors, students learn the skills they need to succeed—in college, career and life—all while earning a high school diploma and significant college credits.

Our website offers a great deal of information; however, please do not hesitate to call me at (508) 588-9100 x1687 if I can be of assistance.    

Thank you for your interest in the Office of Early College.  

Best regards,
Christina M. Alves
Associate Dean, Early College Access
