How did Empire State College help you shape your personal and professional goals?
For me, the academic experience at SUNY has been transformational. My now five-year association with Empire State College (AS ’08, BS ’10 & MA ’13) has not only afforded me the opportunity to realize my long-time goal of pursuing a college education, but has allowed me to pursue advocacy efforts and engage in a discourse with leaders on local, state and national levels,” said Dwyer. “Without question, the policy courses I have received at SUNY have given me the knowledge, self-assurance and confidence to feel worthy of a seat at the table. Last but not least, I would be remiss if I didn’t acknowledge the extraordinary support I’ve received from the faculty at ESC. Without their continuous enthusiasm and encouragement I would not be where I am today.”
