Abstract

In order to confront lower than average completion rates in New York City and to provide a strong economic and civic foundation for Staten Island, the borough’s three institutions of higher education, College of Staten Island/City University of New York, St. John’s University, and Wagner College, have brought together their high school and community partners to form the Staten Island Educational Partnership. Broad-based and cross-sectoral, the partnership has the goal of achieving 30,000 college degrees by 2025.
