A Message from the CWE Alumni Group
In the Spring 1995, the Center for Worker Education Alumni group held its first annual meeting. The group that convened that evening shared a commitment to the original mission of CWE, as the Center has affectionately come to be known: a sense of obligation to other working people who desire a college education and degree, but, for numerous reasons and choices, are not able to attend more traditional colleges with more traditional students.
At the Center we found a place with a curriculum and academic services that placed the interest of working adults in the forefront and valued our perspectives and life experiences.We offer ourselves as living testimony to the power of opportunity – the opportunity to study in challenging courses with engaging professors in a dignified environment. Many of us have used our degrees and all the intellectual accouterments gained at CWE to enrich our lives and communities in a variety of ways. The opportunities that we experienced should be open to every working adult who wants to meet the challenge. Our alumni group is committed to advocating that the Center remains a viable, top-notch program for working adults for many years to come. -The CWE Alumni Group
