The primary mission of the Center for Worker Education (CWE) is to provide an excellent education to working adults from New York City and surrounding regions.
CWE offers an Interdisciplinary Bachelor of Arts degree, an Early Childhood Education Bachelor of Science degree; a joint BA/MA in the Study of the Americas and an MA in the Study of the Americas and a number of certificate programs. CWE’s courses and educational programs are designed especially for non-traditional students whose access to higher education may have been limited or interrupted due to financial limitations, work responsibilities, and family obligations.
A spirit of open inquiry, curricular innovation and academic integrity are linchpins of the CWE mission. Equally important are respect for diversity among faculty, staff and students and a continuous search for our common ground as learners, teachers and scholars. In providing its program, CWE seeks mutually beneficial relationships with labor unions, New York City agencies, private employers, and community organizations who share our educational mission. With a dual focus on excellence and access and by reaching out to the community, CWE aims to be a positive force in lower Manhattan and in the New York metropolitan area.
