    Providing Access to Previously Underserved Communities of Adult Learners
    April 7, 2011
    Elza Dinwiddie-Boyd
    Dean, School of New Resources
    The College of New Rochelle
  • The College of New Rochelle
    Providing Access to Previously Underserved Communities of Adult Learners
    Founded – 1904 by the Ursulines as a liberal arts college for women
    Today
    The School of Arts and Sciences; The Graduate School; the School of New Resources (SNR); and The School of Nursing.
    Principal campus (New Rochelle Campus) on 20 acres in Westchester County.
    Operates six branch campuses:
    New Rochelle Campus; the Co-op City Campus (Northern Bronx); John Cardinal O’Connor Campus (South Bronx); the Rosa Parks Campus (Harlem); DC-37 Campus (TriBeCa); and Brooklyn Campus (Bedford-Stuyvesant).
    SNR (1972)
    Fulfills our mission by providing access to higher education to underserved communities of adult learners.
  • Adults learn best when they can connect course content to relevant life experiences
    The School of New Resources (SNR) places the adult learner’s experience at the heart of the educational process
    The adult’s life experience is validated throughout the curriculum
    Instructors must acknowledge the wealth of experiences adults bring to the classroom and treat them as partners
    The six-credit seminar and the LAP
    Adult learners participate in curriculum development
  • Adults must have an opportunity to earn credits for prior college-level learning (CLL) gained through work and life experiences
    Prior Learning Assessment (PLA) recognizes and legitimizes CLL achieved outside the classroom.
    The Council for Adult and Experiential Learning (CAEL), with support from the Lumina Foundation for Education, studied data of 62,475 students from 48 postsecondary institutions.
    Students with PLA credit had higher graduation rates than non-PLA students.
    PLA students earning 13-24 PLA credits saved an average of 6.6 months of study. Those earning 49 credits or more saved 10.1 months of study.
