Dean/Executive Director Update

Dear Rochester Community:

We are saddened by the loss of Assemblymember David Gantt. He was a great and longtime supporter of the Rochester EOC.

His unending, tireless, and continued support enabled the Rochester EOC to purchase and move to the new Center at 161 Chestnut Street. Through his support and the realization that education was a powerful means to success, the Rochester EOC has been able to provide innovative programs to over 1, 300 students annually.

We will miss Assemblymember David Gantt. We honor his legacy and mourn his loss alongside his family, friends, colleagues and the people of Rochester and NY State.

Best,

Welcome to Rochester EOC

Over fifty years of ongoing service to the Rochester community has earned the REOC the reputation as one of the outstanding Centers in the state (there are 10 such centers in New York state; one in or near almost every major city). Teachers, counselors, support staff, and administrators, with the support of The College at Brockport and the SUNY Center for Academic and Workforce Development, together have worked to give students the opportunity to gain skills needed to continue to college or obtain a career.
