“Education That Works” (Metropolitan College of New York)
The Metropolitan College of New York (MCNY) began as the Audrey Cohen College in 1964. Its slogan is "Education That Works," or "Education That Works for People Who Work."

Education That Works for People Who Work

http://www.metropolitan.edu/about/history1.php
Our institution was founded back in 1964 by educational pioneer Audrey Cohen.

Driven by a holistic vision of a better world, she created a succession of organizations to address the dual issues of economic development and social improvement. Through her lifelong commitment to the interconnected ideals of social justice, educational excellence, and economic opportunity, Audrey Cohen continues to be esteemed as one of the most innovative and respected educational reformers in the world.

Ms. Cohen's enduring commitment to create employment and educational opportunities for all stemmed from her activism during the civil rights and women's movements in the 1950s and 60s. It was also rooted in her conviction that education must empower individuals to take charge of their own lives and to make positive change in organizations and communities.

In 1958, Ms. Cohen, recognizing college-educated women's need for productive and flexible work that could be accomplished while they cared for their families, co-founded PartTime Research Associates, the first corporation employing only women.
