The participating students work for Mt. Sinai in a variety of positions, including data specialists and operations and department supervisors. According to Ted Goldstein, the Dean of Monroe’s Bachelor’s Program, those students will receive the same individual attention Monroe’s on-campus students receive.
“We’ll be providing access to tutoring, academic counseling, and all the other support services that make our Bachelor’s Program distinctive,” he said. “We’re completely committed to their academic success and helping them maximize the career growth that comes with a degree.”The Monroe/Mt. Sinai Cohort is the next step in what the college expects to be a number of similar associations with other professional organizations. In fact, a link-up between Monroe and the New York City Department of Corrections in a criminal justice cohort is scheduled to debut in January.
