Monday, November 19, 2012 (Bronx, NY) – Earlier this month, the Continuing Education Association of New York (CEANY), which has more than 600 active members, presented Eugenio María de Hostos Community College’s Division of Continuing Education and Workforce Development (CEWD) with an Exemplary Program Award for marketing.
Lourdes Mangual de Delgado, Marketing Consultant for CEWD at Hostos was presented with the award for the marketing plan at CEANY’s annual conference, which was held on November 8 in Saratoga Springs, NY. By targeting a larger audience with multimedia platforms and making use of social networking innovations, CEWD served nearly 12,000 continuing education students in the 2011-2012 academic year, thereby earning statewide recognition. Through a concerted effort by the entire staff, the division has continued to grow.
A well-received highlight of the conference was a presentation entitled “Charting Your Career Path,” led by Fern Chan, Director of CUNY CareerPATH, and Zenobia Johnson, Director of the Adult Learning Center at Hostos. This presentation explained how students can set a course for success by creating a career and educational map of options and possibilities, and then following the necessary steps to reach their goals. Not only does this tool enable adult learners to visualize the path to a better future, it also promotes retention as they take ownership of their progress.
“I am so proud of all our staff and the work we do at Hostos,” said Lorraine Altman, Assistant Dean of Continuing Education & Workforce Development. “It really is rewarding to know that we are making a difference in people’s lives and helping to empower the population of the South Bronx.”
