The CUNY School of Professional Studies (CUNY SPS) is pleased to announce the publication of the third report highlighting the work of the Office of Professional Education and Workplace Learning (PEWL).

Established in 2006, PEWL’s mission is to provide individuals with the opportunity to advance their careers through professional coursework, and help organizations achieve their goals with custom workplace learning programs. Since its inception, PEWL has served more than 280,000 workers.

In 2021-2022, under the leadership of Executive Director Amy Perez, PEWL managed and implemented a portfolio of $32.7 million in grants and contracts. The unit develops and runs training programs for city and state agencies and private organizations.

The report features the CUNY/Office of Child Support Services (OCSS) and how they used technology to further the agency's goals; the exponential growth of the Academy for Community Behavioral Health; and the efforts made to further incorporate diversity, equity, and inclusion principles into the Managing for Innovation program.

“We are delighted to showcase PEWL's vital, engaging, and diverse work through this report,” said CUNY SPS Interim Dean Jorge Silva-Puras. “This incredible unit not only partners with agencies and organizations to develop learning solutions, but also provides employees with professional development through a variety of programming. Partnering with PEWL is always a win to an organization. It's unique within the CUNY system and I invite you to read the report to see why."

Perez, who oversees the unit, which has more than 200 staff members, located at CUNY SPS, downtown Manhattan, and upstate New York, said the work that PEWL does moves organizations forward.

"We embed ourselves into agencies across the entire state of New York to understand their needs and solve problems," she said. "I could not be prouder of my team and the work they do to support organizations, city and state agencies and ultimately New Yorkers to meet their goals and develop professionally."
