As the new CSI St. George is well under way on the North Shore of Staten Island, the College of Staten Island (CSI) continues to reach out to all of its neighbors in this diverse borough.

On the opposite end of this almost 14-mile-long Island, CSI’s Office of Continuing Education and Professional Development (CEPD) held an Open House in an effort to better serve the South Shore. More than 100 community members attended the informative event at Mount Loretto to get a glimpse of the Office’s fall offerings.

“It’s our goal to be a resource for all Staten Islanders and our information session on the South Shore helped to connect us to the community of the South Shore. This is a symbol of our commitment to serve the entire Island,” noted Chris Cruz Cullari, CEPD Executive Director.

The Tottenville event showcased information tables focusing on the four areas of Continuing Education: Workforce Development, Pre-College Programming, 1199 Student Support, and Community Enrichment.

South Shore resident Mario Aguero commented, “I am impressed by all the programs offered at CSI though Continuing Education.”

Last year, the Office served more than 6,000 students.

Calling the Open House a “huge success,” Cruz Cullari plans to hold similar events each semester.
