As one of the most highly regarded community colleges in the State University of New
York system, DCC is located on 130 acres in the Town of Poughkeepsie, in the scenic
and historic mid-Hudson Valley. Founded in 1957, DCC serves as the community college
for both Dutchess and Putnam and draws students from surrounding counties and beyond.
A satellite site, in the town of Wappingers Falls, provides additional access to those
at the southern end of the county.
It is one of the largest employers in Dutchess County and plays a vital role in local
economic development and the community’s cultural and social environment. The College
offers more than 40 academic programs. A.A. and A.S. programs designed for transfer
comprise the majority of offerings, with A.A.S. and certificate programs providing
additional options for those who wish to enter the workforce after graduation.
The DCC main campus is situated on a hill and is sprawling and picturesque. Impressive
landscaping and a $2.6 million collection of artwork – including large-scale outdoor
sculptures – create an enriching environment for students, faculty, staff and visitors.
Eleven principal buildings comprise the College facilities. The most recent addition
to the campus is Conklin Hall, a 465-bed, suite-style residence hall owned and operated
by the DCC Association and located at the north end of campus. Other building on campus
include halls for classrooms and laboratories, state of the art science, mathematics
and art classrooms, administrative offices, cafeteria, athletics, library, a student
service center, a center for business and industry, and a day care center.
DCC is committed to the principle of diversity and encourages applications from women,
minorities, veterans, the disabled and all others ( AA/EOE).
