Citi Supports UNH College Access Initiative

Friday, May 27, 2011
On May 26th, the OPTIONS program at UNH member Goddard Riverside Community Center held the final of two Culmination and Evaluation meetings for the UNH Strengthening Settlement House College Access Programs initiative.

With generous support from the Citi Foundation, staff of five UNH member agencies increased their capacity to provide effective college access services for low-income students through participation in the 60-hour Foundation and Framework for College Access Counseling Course.

Those agencies were CAMBA, The Educational Alliance, Grand Street Settlement, Henry Street Settlement and Jacob A. Riis Neighborhood Settlement House. Participants will continue to build on their skills through peer learning activities facilitated by UNH.

UNH Professional Development Program for Senior Managers Holds Graduation

Monday, March 01, 2010

A graduation ceremony for the participants in the UNH Professional Development Program for Senior Managers at Baruch College's School of Public Affairs (SPA) was held in February. The 13-week program, a new partnership with CUNY's Baruch College, was designed to help UNH member agency executive staff strengthen their leadership skills and develop new management tools. Feedback from program participants highlighted the value of this learning experience, including the opportunity to build relationships with peers from other agencies.

One senior manager commented, "It was great to compare notes with UNH colleagues. It was reassuring to know that we share some of the same concerns and successes due to our involvement in the settlement house movement and UNH."
