Concordia College New York and Wartburg Announce Partnership

Concordia College New York and Wartburg recently held a press conference announcing a new partnership to give adults 65+ in Mount Vernon the opportunity to earn a college degree.

Dr. David J. Gentner – President & CEO of Wartburg, Rev. Dr. John A. Nunes – President of Concordia College, Mayor Richard Thomas – City of Mount Vernon, spoke about the impact and opportunities this program will provide.

Combining the educational excellence of Concordia College with Wartburg’s expertise in senior engagement, SeniorU will give adults in Mount Vernon the chance to earn a two- or four-year college degree in Interdisciplinary Studies.

The SeniorU Interdisciplinary Studies Degree is designed to improve students’ health in mind, body and attitude in a fun, experiential learning program. Taught by Concordia College faculty, courses are wide-ranging and relevant for today’s seniors. The program’s participatory model means that students learn by doing – paving new ways to think, communicate and be.

Classes will be taught on Wartburg’s Mount Vernon campus beginning in January 2018. Transportation to classes for Mount Vernon residents will be provided. The program is affordable for all and may be fully subsidized for qualified applicants. Admission is open to all Mount Vernon residents with a high school diploma or GED. The program will be open to the larger community in Fall 2018.

Concordia’s Admission team will help handle all the applications details. To learn more or to apply, call Concordia Admissions at 914-337-9300 ext. 2124 or visit www.concordia-ny.edu/SeniorU.
