This year, 33 NECC staff are completing their master’s degree in applied behavior analysis (ABA) with Western New England University (WNEU). On Wednesday, June 13, NECC held a celebratory luncheon at our Southborough campus.  Along with the ABA graduate program faculty, guests for the luncheon included WNEU Psychology Department Chair Dr. Denine Northrup and NECC President and CEO Vinnie Strully.  Congratulations to these WNEU students! 


Just last month NECC celebrated 48 Simmons College master’s graduates, bringing the total to 1,101 graduates since the partnership with Simmons and NECC began. Overall, NECC’s graduate training partnerships with area universities have resulted in a total of 1,454 master’s trained professionals.  NECC staff can earn a master’s degree through Simmons or WNEU by enrolling in onsite classes at NECC, and accrue little to no debt for the degree. 


NECC currently employs 346 master’s level staff, 20 doctoral level staff, and 192 Board Certified Behavioral Analysts.
