An Update from Dr. Sessoms

Dear Friends:
Your state university has accomplished some marvelous things in the last year, and it is my privilege to bring you some great news from the University of the District of Columbia. 
First, our Community College is thriving. We recognized our city was missing a vital educational link for our residents. So, we created CCDC within a year to fill a very specific purpose. After its first year of operation, CCDC has moved its central location to a brand new, state-
of-the-art facility at 801 North Capitol Street,Northeast, just two blocks from Union Station. CCDC has also expanded operations in the former Bertie Backus Middle School Site on South Dakota Avenue, Northeast, where our renowned and expanding nursing program will reside.We plan to develop the Backus site as a School of Allied Health serving both the University and the community college.
