In 1966, Genesee Community College was founded from an involved and supportive citizenship, a tradition that continues today. We thank the supporters for their donations, bequests and in-kind gifts which help create GCC’s cutting-edge programs, state-of-the-art facilities, and the high-tech resources used by our dedicated faculty to motivate and transform the lives of students as they become global citizens in our changing world.
