Welcome to the Office of Educational Partnerships!

SUNY Orange's Office of Educational Partnerships (OEP) extends the educational mission of the College beyond its Middletown and Newburgh campuses to meet the educational needs of Orange County residents. Through OEP, SUNY Orange partners with other educational institutions and community groups to offer a variety of educational opportunities to county residents. Among OEP's ongoing Partnership Programs are the Community College in the High School Program (CCHSP), the Center for Youth Development (CYD), Career Pathways in Tech Prep (CPTP) program and the SMART Summer Program. OEP also participates in college faculty/secondary teacher collaborations, and coordinates articulation agreements and evening satellite centers. (See left menu for links to individual programs).

The primary focus of OEP is to:

  1. Engage in P-16 collaborations.
  2. Provide SUNY Orange students with more explicit and focused pathways for connecting and sequencing their academic pursuits.
  3. Participate in educational reform and dialogue at the state and local level.

These partnerships allow us to learn from each other, contribute to the educational, economic, and cultural vitality of the region and broaden the scope of the educational experiences of area residents.
