Our Alumni Group
Founded in 1995, CWE Alumni created an affiliate group of The CCNY Alumni Association with the focus to advocating that the Center remains a viable, a top-notch program for working adults for many years to come.
The goal of the group is to strengthen and sustain the relationship between CWE alumni and students. We offer exciting and varied programs of interest to our alumni throughout the academic year including social and community service events and workshops. We focus all our efforts to provide a scholarship award for an enrolled returning student.
The City College Division of Interdisciplinary Studies at the Center for Worker Education is the alma mater for over 4,000 graduates of our degree programs in Interdisciplinary Arts and Sciences and in Early Childhood Education. The CWE Alumni Group is dedicated to serving this community. This site will keep you updated, informed and connected with past classmates.

Originally from Cincinnati, Dylan Ewing started at The City College of New York in the fall of 2019. Returning to school after a long hiatus, he worked diligently to obtain an undergraduate degree while working full time.
“CCNY has had a very positive impact on my life. I enrolled here because I had been wanting to change the direction of my work and life for some time but only had a high school diploma,” said the 42-year-old, who has lived in Brooklyn since 2006. “I felt that going back to school would help me move forward.”
He is a member of Alpha Sigma Lambda Honor Society a premier nationally recognized honor society for adult learners, and exceled in literature and film studies. Throughout his time at CCNY, he maintained a 3.9 GPA and is graduating summa cum laude.
“Taking things one step at a time, I found a renewed passion for education, research, and writing, and a much better sense of direction than when I started,” he said.
After graduation, Ewing plans to attend graduate school, and pursue research and writing opportunities in the humanities and arts.
