- Gain hands-on experience and practical knowledge through Constructive Action, a workable plan the student develops and implements, partnering with agencies such as NYC Office of Emergency Management, American Red Cross of Greater New York, FEMA Region II, The Salvation Army, and the Voluntary Organizations Active in Disasters in NYC.
- Benefit from flexible schedules designed to make education practical for working adults.
- Have access to financial aid and scholarship opportunities.
