Event description
Broward College President presents a major initiative called BrowardUP to bring education to individuals in economically distressed areas.

About this Event

Broward College introduces a major new initiative to increase educational access and attainment levels to individuals in Broward County zip codes with the highest unemployment and lowest education levels. The President of Broward College will present this innovative program “Broward UP” giving Unlimited Potential.

It is aimed at improving the lives of residents in Broward County zip codes with the highest unemployment and lowest education levels to attend college at the same time striving to solve challenges, improve lives, and build partnerships to help every person realize their Unlimited Potential (UP).

Focusing on three goals, this community-centric approach is grounded in the belief that many residents of Broward County face significant barriers to pursuing postsecondary education. To address these challenges, and drive social mobility and economic development, strategic partnerships are being forged with municipalities, non-profit organizations, and industry leaders throughout the county. The Broward UP Commission, comprised of ten teams, was established to fulfill the objectives of Broward UP.

"By partnering with local municipalities and community organizations, we are working directly with communities that have identified the need for specific support," said Broward College President Gregory Adam Haile, Esq.

Speakers: Broward College President Gregory Haile, Esq.

Dr. Mildred Coyne, Senior Vice President, Workforce Education and Innovation for Broward College.
