Capital One Foundation Awards a Multi-Year Grant to BMCC

November 17, 2016

The Borough of Manhattan Community College (BMCC/CUNY) Center for Continuing Education and Workforce Development has been awarded $110,000 for the first year of a multi-year grant by the Capital One Foundation to support workforce development.

The purpose of the grant is to develop credit-articulation policies that maintain the CUNY Pathway model as students move from certificate programs offered through continuing education, to accredited programs that build toward an associate degree.

BMCC will be working on this project with Hostos Community College, the CUNY Office of Continuing Education and Workforce Development Programs, and the CUNY Labor Market Information Service at the Center for Urban Research.

“We are pleased to be a part of such a distinguished group of workforce leaders from around the country,” said Sunil Gupta, BMCC Dean of Adult Continuing Education. “We are honored to have been selected by Capital One Foundation.”
