Seventh Annual College Forum & Fair Connects CBOs and Higher Ed, Talks Transfer

Posted by Delia Kim Sorto

PASE’s 7th annual Connecting CBOs & Higher Ed: A College Forum and Fair gathered together 175 representatives from 46 colleges and 72 community-based organizations to learn how to most effectively work together to help young people access, persist in, and graduate from college.

The day was framed by an opening panel discussion focusing on the specific and strategic ways that colleges and community-based organizations can support students through the transfer process. A huge thanks to panelists Courtney McAnuff, Vice Chancellor for Enrollment Management at Rutgers University-New Brunswick, Charles H. Pryor, II, Dean of Student Engagement, Guttman Community College, and Jonathan A. Chavez, Director of College Persistence and College STEPS, Cypress Hill Local Development Corporation and to NYU for once again hosting this wonderful event!
