Constructive Action

At the end of each semester, each student produces a written project known as a Constructive Action or CA. The CA is the heart of MCNY's Purpose-Centered Education, which encompasses learning, action and assessment. This means that first you acquire the necessary information and skills, next you put that knowledge to use in a professional setting and, finally, you reflect and analyze the results. The CA is a workable plan of action for a student's employer who seeks to resolve a particular workplace situation. This project illustrates how well a student has integrated theories from class into the work setting or internship in an effective, relevant, scholarly and clearly documented manner.

The following are quotes from students about their experiences with the Constructive Action:

"My CA was to develop a training program that would make artists more aware of child development issues and develop policies for assigning artists to teach and to make them better teachers."

Ana Noriega
Assistant Director, Amgen Charter School
B.S. New School 1998; M.S. MCNY 2000

"I developed my CA on creative solutions to housing the homeless. I put my concept into action when I secured funding to open a residential facility for homeless men."

Phillip Hogan
Founder / Executive Director
Housing Matters of New York
Bachelor of Professional Studies, MCNY 1997;
MSW, Fordham University 2000

"My CA helped me to understand the benefits of developing a marketing plan. I was able to focus on an area within my organization that had an influence on our company's profitability. The CA structure forced me to think of the tools and strategies that would help me influence the business from our target market segments."
