Truckee Meadows Community College

Truckee Meadows Community College is a community college located in the U.S. state of Nevada primarily in the city of Reno. From 1971 to 1979 the college was a branch of Western Nevada Community College. Its current name is based on its primary service area, Truckee Meadows in Washoe County, Nevada. The college president is Dr. Maria Sheehan. The college has more than 500 faculty and is accredited by the Northwest Commission on College and Universities. The college serves more than 13,000 students each semester in state-supported classes.

Programs

The college offers a university-transfer program and a wide variety of occupational and applied technical programs, including a large number of developmental courses, particularly in mathematics and English to prepare students to take university transfer courses. Starting in the 1980s, the student demand for courses and programs created a need for more facilities. In addition to expanding the Dandini Campus, the college established the IGT Applied Technology Center (March 1999), Meadowood Center (February 2003), the Nell J. Redfield Foundation Performing Arts Center (September 2003), and the TMCC High Tech Center at Redfield (September 2005).

Continuing Education

The college's Workforce Development & Continuing Education department offers short non-credit courses in a variety of subject areas. The college encourages non-faculty community members to propose interesting non-credit courses; potential instructors are "interviewed and selected for their confidence in their subject and their willingness to share their expertise."
