February 5, 2020 – Today the City University of New York announced its partnership with InStride to leverage CUNY’s robust online education programs as a vehicle for employees to pursue career-boosting degrees. InStride will work to expand CUNY’s relationships with national and international corporations, giving their employees access to the top-quality education that CUNY provides.
“Being selected by the CUNY system provides InStride’s corporate partners with a quality online academic partner in one of the world’s most economically vibrant cities,” said Vivek Sharma, CEO of InStride.
The CUNY School of Professional Studies (CUNY SPS), which offers fully online degree programs within the CUNY system, meets the needs of adults who are looking to finish a bachelor’s degree or advance in the workplace. The school’s partnership with InStride will further advance CUNY’s mission to act as an engine of economic mobility by expanding access to a quality education to workers of all ages.
