New York Chiropractic College, located in Seneca Falls, NY, has changed its name to the Northeast College of Health Sciences.
“This is a momentous event in the history of our college, and one that has long been considered,” said President Michael Mestan. “In service to the NYCC BLUEprint Strategic Plan 2018-2021, in late 2018 and early 2019, the college conducted significant research on how our institutional name might best reflect the collaborative, diverse, inter-professional education our college provides students. After receiving input from many stakeholders, including faculty, staff, students and alumni, in June 2019 the college’s Board of Trustees voted unanimously for a name change. Though the process was put on a short hold due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the college was then granted authorization by New York State in June 2021 to henceforth be known as Northeast College of Health Sciences.”
The 102-year-old institution has evolved over the years through three different campus homes and organizational names.
“We look eagerly toward our future as a distinguished college of health sciences with a renowned chiropractic program always at its core,” Mestan said.
The college in 1919 was founded as the Columbia Institute of Chiropractic in Manhattan, and in 1977 changed its name to the New York Chiropractic College. It moved from Manhattan to Long Island (Levittown, NY) in 1980, and Long Island to Seneca Falls in 1991 to the former home of Eisenhower College. In the early 2000s it added graduate degrees in disciplines including applied clinical nutrition and human anatomy and physiology instruction.
The college announced a strong spring 2021 doctor of chiropractic program enrollment with the largest incoming spring cohort since 2018.
