Spotlight on Transition

This month's spotlight shines on: Films airing on WXXI-TV as part of the MOVE TO INCLUDE initiative

We are pleased to announce that the film Rethinking College from Think College at Institute for Community Inclusion and The Opportunity Project from the Institute for Innovative Transition will air on WXXI-TV, July 23rd starting at 8:30pm. The purpose of these films is to promote and cultivate inclusivity on college campuses and will be presented in partnership with WXXI Public Broadcasting Move to Include initiative. The two films presented in this broadcast feature Robert Lonie, who attended Keuka College‘s D.R.I.V.E. program and Cori Piels who graduated from TPSID at Monroe Community College.

We are very excited about this opportunity and want to say a special thank you to the The Golisano Foundation and MOVE TO INCLUDE for airing the films and giving our community the opportunity to see first hand the positive impact that inclusive higher education can have.

We hope you will pop some popcorn and tune in.
