RGB is working with the RI Office of the Postsecondary Commissioner (RIOPC) for a new Northern Rhode Island Higher Education Center to be located in Woonsocket.

Governor Raimondo recently announced this project, which was covered by several media outlets:

As reported by Patch:

WOONSOCKET, RI – From Governor Gina Raimondo: Governor Gina M. Raimondo officially announced a new public-private partnership that will bring a new job training and higher education center to Woonsocket. At a press conference outside Woonsocket City Hall, the Governor announced four employer partners — including Amica, CVS Health, Fidelity and AAA Northeast — that will help develop curricula and training programs offered at the Northern Rhode Island Higher Education Center. The Center is modeled on the successful Westerly Education Center that Governor Raimondo established through a public-private partnership with Electric Boat, the Royce Family Fund and others earlier in her term.
