Commission Competitive Education Awards Program FY 2011
NYCC proposes a multi-site, multi-purpose, centrally coordinated EAP. With over 65 member colleges and universities who have a total full-time enrollment of nearly 410,000 students, we are in a unique position to influence the number of students who volunteer, and the ways in which they impact struggling communities. New York colleges and universities are resource-rich institutions that have a long history of civic engagement, with missions that encourage democratic participation. In part, NYCC's mission is to leverage these resources to meet the varied community needs across NY.
