John Bradley and Josie Schermerhorn, of the Vassar Education Collaboration (VEC), have secured a Youth Grant from the City of Poughkeepsie to support Vassar After School Tutoring (VAST). As part of VEC, VAST runs year-round programming for Poughkeepsie middle schoolers. This consists of a summer camp, as well as after school enrichment three days a week.

The Mellon Foundation-funded Consortium on Forced Migration, Displacement, and Education (CFMDE) responds to the ongoing global challenges posed by forced migration, through curriculum development, sponsoring collaborative research, and supporting displaced scholars across four college campuses: Vassar, Bard, Bennington, Sarah Lawrence, and The New School. This past year Vassar successfully launched its new signature program, the Digital Scholars Teaching Fellowship program, which pairs displaced scholars (teaching virtually) with Vassar faculty members (teaching in person).
