2013-2014 School of New Resources [ARCHIVED CATALOG]

School of New Resources



The School of New Resources was established in 1972 as a baccalaureate liberal arts program designed to address the needs of adult learners living in a complex urban world. The program, non-traditional in nature, takes seriously the maturity of its students, and their families, and career commitments. The innovative adult-oriented curriculum has made the School of New Resources a leader in adult higher education. Both the learning environment of the School and the respect the School has for the adult student’s experience have brought the opportunity to earn a college degree to thousands of women and men from diverse social and economic backgrounds and from suburban and inner-city communities throughout the New York metropolitan area.

The School offers interdisciplinary Areas of Interest in Letters, Social Sciences, Psychology, Communications, and Foreign Languages.  Students also have an opportunity to complete a professional course sequence in the areas of Business Administration and Management, Health Care Administration, Human Services, and Criminal Justice.  The School of New Resources’ Addiction Counseling Program prepares students to secure the Crentialed Alcoholism and Substance Abuse Counselor (CASAC) license.  Features such as student-initiated courses, small-class seminars, independent study and assessment of prior learning from life experience, telecourses, internships, and travel/study options provide a variety of learning opportunities within academic programs.  To foster the principle that entry into college should lead to employment and advancement upon graduation, the School of New Resources successfully pioneered an adult career counseling model called ACCESS. This Adult Career Counseling Education and Support Services project makes practicable the achievement of a B.A. degree and career advancement through the integration of learning and career skills development.

In keeping with the philosophy of the School of New Resources, students and their faculty advisors prepare individualized degree plans and participate in the course development process within the context of the School’s curriculum and degree requirements. The School has 93 full-time professional and instructional staff, 498 part-time and resource faculty, a student body of over 4,500, and an alumnae/I body of over 10,000.

The School’s six campuses within the New York City metropolitan area, each with its distinct student population and climate, reflect the character of their respective communities. The College of New Rochelle Campus, set in a suburban environment, serves adult students in Westchester County; the Co-op City Campus provides a neighborhood site for residents of Co-op City and the Bronx; the DC 37 Campus, housed in the DC 37 headquarters of the American Federation of State, County, and Municipal Employees (AFL-CIO), in lower Manhattan, represents the oldest baccalaureate degree program offered at a union facility in the country; the John Cardinal O’Connor Campus, at 332 East 149th Street, is the first and only four-year college degree program for adults in the South Bronx; the Brooklyn Campus is located at 1368 Fulton Street, home of the Bedford-Stuyvesant Restoration Corporation (founded in 1967 as the nation’s first community development corporation to promote revitalization in the community); and the Rosa Parks Campus at 144 West 125th Street in Harlem, where students are exposed to the newest tools of technology and communication, and a full range of academic programs and services.

Graduates of the School of New Resources continue to demonstrate the concept of lifelong learning: alumnae/I have pursued graduate study in many academic disciplines; others have completed law school, business school, and doctoral degree programs. The School is proud to count among its graduates elementary and secondary school teachers and administrators, college professors and attorneys, businesswomen and men, psychologists and artists, and public administrators and community service professionals.
