PROSPERAR Program Director
About SUNY Orange:
SUNY Orange was founded in 1950 as the first county-sponsored community college in the State University of New York system. It has earned its reputation as a pioneer and innovator in meeting the needs of its students and the area it primarily serves. SUNY Orange was the first two-year college in the nation to offer the associate degree nursing program and studies in electron microscopy; and in 1982, the college was the first community college to plan and co-sponsor with local chambers of commerce a business institute.
SUNY Orange has touched the lives of countless numbers of the county's 350,000 residents through its credit programs, non-credit programming and cultural events. As the needs of the community grow, the college will continue to play a significant role in the county's endeavor to face the challenges and to profit from the opportunities that await it.
SUNY Orange, newly designated as a Hispanic Serving Institution, seeks a visionary leader committed to serving a diverse student population, to lead the implementation of its federal Title V Grant titled PROSPERAR: Moving Students from Surviving to Thriving. PROSPERAR is a transformative college-wide development program building on the College's Guided Pathways initiative to close equity gaps and deliver significant increases in student achievement, persistence, and retention to graduation and transfer. The PROSPERAR Program Director will lead this five-year action plan to redesign programs and services, improve student outcomes, and increase institutional vitality. The Program Director will lead PROSPERAR as a hands-on director, overseeing daily activities, collaborating with all associated departments, executing the design, testing and implementation of all activities, liaising with appropriate persons, use assessments to drive program improvements, and report to the VP of Academic affairs in the role of Project Director.
