OCC and St. John Fisher College team up again for new doctoral program

Two area schools are teaming up again, but this time to offer a new doctoral program in leadership in Central New York.

Onondaga Community College and St. John Fisher College announced the new joint program Monday after forming a partnership back in November allowing students to transfer associate's degree college credits.

The new program will be offered through St. John Fisher's School of Education and will be the second site the program is offered. College of New Rochelle, outside of New York City, was the first to offer the program back in 2009.

Both schools say the doctoral program will help foster leadership skills in this increasingly complex and diverse world.
