Press Release (ePRNews.com) - WESTBURY, N.Y. - May 30, 2017 - The NYIT Vocational Independence Program (NYIT |VIP) will continue to deliver top-quality transition programming as we have since 1987. We will continue to provide our wide array of community-based work experiences, opportunities to engage in credit coursework at NYIT, our comprehensive Executive Functioning, Independent Living and Social/Communication curricula and our robust and individualized system of student support. It has always been our goal to have NYIT | VIP students truly integrated in daily college life. Relocating to Old Westbury will allow us to realize this goal.
The majority of the NYIT | VIP curriculum will be delivered in classrooms located throughout the NYIT Old Westbury campus. NYIT | VIP students will now enjoy all the services and amenities that the Old Westbury campus offers its students, including such things as: NYIT libraries, student run clubs and activities, athletic and other campus events, academic resources and other student services.
All residential NYIT students in Old Westbury live in residence halls located on the State University of New York (SUNY) Old Westbury campus. NYIT |VIP will have its own residence hall, exclusive to our students, within this residential village.
