Obviously, we recognize the value of a quality education, and not just at the university level. Early learning is absolutely critical. That’s why our undergrads and educators work extensively with the city’s youngest minds, from pre-K to high school. We’re equally enthusiastic to help adult learners pursue their interests and passions. It’s what we stand for. It’s the central strand of our DNA.
