Nyack Extension Center

Nyack Extension Center

The new RCC Hospitality and Culinary Arts Center is located downtown in the iconic river town Village of Nyack, NY. At its focus, the Center will offer credited degree and non-credited programming to students, community and tourists.

Moreover, the Center’s objective will be to strengthen the local and national foothold of artisanal foods, craft beverages and agro-tourism originating from the Mid-Hudson Valley region, and to support community initiatives for Rockland County residents and our nearby friends.
