Educational Opportunity Centers

Quality education has the power to change lives. But for many, choices and circumstance put the education and training they need beyond reach. At SUNY University Center for Academic and Workforce Development, we create access to opportunity by giving New York State the programs that help eliminate barriers to education. In communities, we are a source of skills, a gateway to better jobs, and a positive influence on people’s lives. Behind the scenes, we champion issues and channel resources to the centers and staff who empower students. Across the state, we are an economic engine, making a lasting difference through the many lives we touch. We stand behind the potential of all New Yorkers to pursue their dreams. And we’re committed to make opportunity a reality and put more people on their path to upward mobility.
