Support for Pathways

March 20, 2013

“CUNY’s Pathways initiative furthers the promise of access that is the cornerstone of public higher education. By ensuring seamless transfer from community colleges to four-year colleges, the initiative sends a powerful message about the importance of community college education—-and about the University’s belief in the potential of every student to achieve true academic progress. The combination of access and excellence at CUNY, the nation’s largest public urban institution, is a remarkable achievement and serves as a beacon of hope to colleges and universities across the country.”

Those are the words of Eduardo Padrón, president of Miami Dade College. President Padrón is joined by other leading academics and university professors in speaking out in support of Pathways.
