Cayuga Community College was awarded the contract in support of the Central/Southern Tier Regional Adult Education Network. This award falls under the Workforce Investment Act Title II from the New York State Office of Adult Career and Continuing Education Services. The contract spans five years beginning July 2009 and concluding June 2014.

The Central/Southern Tier is one of seven RAENs providing technical assistance and professional development to adult literacy, occupational, and continuing education programs funded by the NYS Education Department. The goal of the RAEN is to improve the quality of state-funded adult and family literacy programs and to assist programs in meeting or exceeding statewide benchmarks of the National Reporting System. The Central/Southern Tier RAEN is charged with the planning and implementation of high quality, research-based professional development delivered throughout the sixteen counties of Broome, Cayuga, Chemung, Chenango, Cortland, Delaware, Herkimer, Madison, Oneida, Onondaga, Oswego, Otsego, Schuyler, Steuben, Tioga, and Tompkins.

The RAEN serves as the primary liaison between the 28 local programs and the New York State Education Department while monitoring these programs as they progress toward state and national education targets. As the Lead Educational Agency, Cayuga Community College will also lead a joint initiative with the NYS Education Department in the exploration of post secondary transitional services to support adult literacy students as they transition into college.
