"Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world."
Dr. Efrat Levy, Empire State College
I have been a faculty member at SUNY Empire State College for more than 25 years. I work with non-traditional college students in helping them assess their career interests, identifying life experience that can be shaped into a portfolio requesting college credit, advising about education and training opportunities, and helping students design degree programs that are meaningful to them personally and professionally.
