is new to Lansing, but not to Michigan. The career school was founded in 1934 by Ruth Dorsey, and the new 10,000 square foot campus on South Cedar is the school’s ninth location.
“The response that we have gotten so far has been positive,” says Dorsey Schools’ Niya Sims of the new campus. “It is great to hear people say they are glad we are in the community.”
The Lansing location’s School of Healthcare began on August 13 and offers training programs for medical assistants, medical administration and billing, patient care technicians and pharmacy technicians. The School of Beauty is scheduled to open this fall.
“Each program at Dorsey Schools is committed to providing quality career education and positive reinforcement,” says Sims, “enabling the development of self-esteem, self-reliance, discipline and confidence in each graduate, coupled with an obligation to the communities where they live and work.”
Across its nine locations Dorsey School offers programs in technology training, and certifications for the medical, culinary arts, business, legal, and computer fields.
