Education Opportunities for Adults at SUNY Broome Community College

SUNY Broome Community College Associate Vice President of Distance Learning, Dean of Health Science, Andrea Wade and Program Coordinator, Ann Czernecki talk about the Plus 50 initiative on the local public affairs program airing on WNBF June 15, with an encore presentation on June 23.

The program is funded under a three year, $3.2 million grant to the American Association of Community Colleges provided by Deerbrook Charitable Trust. Plus 50 assists adults age 50 and over in completing degrees or certificates, moving on to new careers or pursuing new interests.

A survey will be going out soon to BCC graduates and others interested in adult education in order to collect information on just what the needs of adult students are and what fields they are most interested in pursuing.

The program’s advisory board includes representatives from Broome-Tioga Workforce Development Board, the ATTAIN Lab, New York Assemblywoman Donna Lupardo’s office, Office for Aging and others.

Wade and Czernecki point out there is a wide variety of fields open to adult student and community colleges present a special environment that not only promotes a degree of comfort in getting back into continuing education, but are also, often very cost friendly.

Southern Tier Close Up airs weekly at 12:10 p.m. on Saturday on News Radio 1290 WNBF.
