On Thursday October 3rd there will be a protest against Brooklyn College’s arbitrary decision to close the Urban Policy and Administration (UPA) program at the Graduate Center for Worker Education (GCWE). For more than 30 years, the Brooklyn College, City University of New York, Graduate Center for Worker Education, located in downtown Manhattan, has provided an opportunity for New York City working-class professionals to earn masters’ degrees in Urban Policy & Administration with specializations in New York City Government and Health and Nutrition Sciences. Proud alumni have gone on to elected and public office in New York City and careers in law, higher education, labor unions, public health, and non-profits. In short, the GCWE has made it possible for New York City’s diverse, working-class population to get the skills and credentials they need to advance in their professional careers and also advance the interests of the working-class as a whole.
Invited Guests include Brooklyn Elected Officials and Dignitaries
