SUNY views education as a continuum that begins at birth and is carried on through school, college, career, and even into retirement. SUNY's Office of the Education Pipeline is establishing a series of systemic and sustainable regional education networks across the state and bringing together partners who have signed on to strengthen this educational continuum. SUNY's partners include leaders in Pre-K-12 schools, higher education, business and industry, community organizations, government leaders, parents and other stakeholders who are committed to helping children succeed from birth through careers.
In partnership with StriveTogether, SUNY is helping communities all around the state to adapt a framework for civic infrastructure to serve as the foundation of their cradle to career efforts. Partnerships have officially launched in Albany, Astoria/Long Island City, Clinton County, Geneva, Harlem, Rochester South Bronx and Yonkers; many more are starting to take shape, including Bedford Stuyvesant in Brooklyn, Binghamton, Farmingdale, and Mohawk Valley. Together these local partnerships form New York State Cradle to Career Alliance at SUNY - the first statewide network in the nation!
