PEF Members in Regions 9-12 – Take advantage of this great benefit!
The Joseph S. Murphy Institute for Worker Education and Labor Studies is part of the City University of New York and serves working adults who seek to improve their professional skills, upgrade their qualifications, advance their careers, deepen their understanding of their union and the world and to earn college credits, advanced certificates and degrees. Advanced certificates in both Labor Studies and Labor Relations, each earning 12 graduate credits, are available. The Institute is a partnership between CUNY and New York City Unions. It was initiated by NYC labor and nurtured by us. Representatives from the Murphy Institute can distribute information and speak briefly about Murphy Institute courses and programs available for PEF members at your membership meeting.
The Murphy Institute is particularly welcoming to working adults offering free academic support, advisement, a diversity scholarship in labor studies and assistance with union tuition support and financial aid. While Murphy courses are conveniently located in mid-town Manhattan, if a group of PEF members is interested in studying together, the Institute can come to you – organizing customized classes at times and locations of the groups choosing.
