It is a grassroots movement comprised of many but speaking with a single voice in favor of new policies, systems and programs to enhance the overall quality of life for all residents.

SUNY Sullivan personal enrichment courses are short programs (often one session) that offer a friendly environment in which to learn a new skill. These programs are based on the premise that learning is its own reward. They provide opportunities to explore new interests, meet other people with similar interests, and participate in group discussions, “hands-on” activities or travel.
