A Conversation with Dr. Lester W. Young, Jr.

Join Medgar Evers College (MEC) President Rudolph F. Crew and Dr. Lester W. Young Jr. of the New York State Legislature Regent at Large as they discuss the innovative, new model for reaching Central Brooklyn’s young learners.  The Medgar Evers Pipeline Initiative (MEPI) is an academic blueprint designed to offer school communities an avenue to strengthen student success at key transitions – elementary school through high school; high school graduation to college admission; college entry to degree completion. The MEPI embraces schools in Brooklyn in a collaborative partnership and exposes them to the wealth of resources available at Medgar Evers College.
