Celebrating the UCAWD Class of 2020

Join us on Wednesday, July 29. 6:00pm

Through our historic network of Educational Opportunity Centers, SUNY UCAWD elevates the potential of New York's underserved by providing a state-wide system of quality, tuition (debt)-free academic and workforce development programs that impart skills, enhance college and job prospects, and improve lives and communities.

This year, we celebrate the thousands of graduates who have completed their studies in a new way. Through the COVID-19 crisis, students have found new ways to be successful in their studies, and we celebrate their work as they now become ready to become the essential workforce we so depend on.
