The film "Rethinking College" from Think College at the Institute for Community Inclusion, based at the University of Massachusetts Boston, and "The Opportunity Project" from the Institute for Innovative Transition at the Warner School of Education will air on WXXI-TV on Thurs., July 23 starting at 8:30 p.m. The goal of these films, which will be presented in partnership with WXXI Public Broadcasting's MOVE TO INCLUDE initiative, is to promote and cultivate inclusivity on college campuses. Two films presented in this broadcast, as part of the new local micro-documentary film series The Opportunity Project, will feature Robert Lonie, who attended Keuka College‘s D.R.I.V.E. program, and Cori Piels, who graduated from TPSID at Monroe Community College.

A special thank you to the The Golisano Foundation and MOVE TO INCLUDE for airing the films and giving our community the opportunity to see first hand the positive impact that inclusive higher education can have. Learn more about the film screenings.
