LIFE Program 1st Anniversary Celebration at SUNY Polytechnic Institute
College LIFE, a program of Upstate Cerebral Palsy and SUNY Polytechnic Institute, recently celebrated its one-year anniversary providing people with developmental disabilities a learning experience on a college campus. Families, friends, Upstate Cerebral Palsy and SUNY Polytechnic Institute staff, including Dr. Veronica Tichenor, Associate Professor of Sociology and Program Coordinator of Community and Behavioral Health who was instrumental in making this program a reality, were in attendance to celebrate the first class of enrolled students. This is a unique partnership designed to help students develop life, work and self-advocacy skills to achieve the next level of independence and lead fully inclusive lives, all while being a part of the SUNY Poly campus community.
