"I am a New York City native and Human Resources enthusiast, who loves the arts. I love to utilize my love of children, shared experiences, and organizational management to spread joy and enhance work experiences."
"I chose the program at CU because I have a passion for learning with like-minded students. After graduation I want to attain my Master’s & grow as a Housing Advocate. I love the community I live in & want to help move it forward!"
"My college journey began in 2004. I wanted my Bachelor's & a college right for me, one that would fit my schedule being a mom with 3 daughters while working & maintaining a personal life. Now, I am graduating, a moment I have always wanted!"
"As a five-year breast cancer survivor and with the support of my parents, family, friends, advisors & mentors, I now feel prepared to move forward in furthering my education. I will always be forever thankful to CU."
Congratulations to CU graduate and Director of Programs at AS220, Ashley Anjel Newmann!
Newport North End residents Dianne Ford (CU student) and Ellen Pinnock completed their first year of full time volunteer service this September through the national AmeriCorps VISTA program as part of the Newport Working Cities Collaborative.
College Unbound (CU), an innovative institution located in Providence, Rhode Island, designed for low-income working adult students who want to earn their bachelor’s degrees, was the subject of a symposium convened by the American Council on Education (ACE).
Check out this article "5 Lessons from Cities on Reimagining College" from POLITICO, where CU is mentioned as "...a non-traditional way to earn a four-year degree that tailors its curriculum around adult students' life experiences."
Our case study is out! Thank you to the American Council on Education and all who participated in the year-long study for your insight and hard work.
