Education is the foundation of hope for this country and for the future of the world. Now, more than ever, it is necessary for education to be available for all who wish to learn, especially for the non-traditional and adult student. The College of New Rochelle School of New Resources has long been a leader in adult higher education, with a program which provides accessibility through six campuses. Our liberal arts program is tailored to the needs of the adult learner. We encourage our students to use their rich life experiences, along with our seminars and ACCESS (Adult Career Counseling: Education Support Services) to develop into leaders and mainstays of their communities.
Today, a degree alone is not enough. Through a liberal arts education, one learns to think, to be analytical, to acquire the wisdom to make conscientious and sound decisions. At the School of New Resources, we strive to provide not just an education and a degree but a quality education as well that instills a love of lifelong learning and the desire to give back to our communities and to those who will follow in our paths. Our students go on to reach their goals, to attain higher degrees, and to find rewarding jobs. With the tools provided to them through our course of study, they can make a difference in today’s world. Therefore, it is our hope to inspire our adult learners to act out on the sage advice of Ralph Waldo Emerson: “Do not follow where the path may lead, go, instead, where there is no path and leave a trail.”
