On Friday, February 3 at 12:30 pm, Mayor Muriel Bowser will join the University of the District of Columbia (UDC) President Ronald Mason to announce the University of the District of Columbia Workforce Edge Partnership (UDC-WE), a dual-track community college program that allows adult learners enrolled in DC public charter high schools to receive workforce training skills, while earning their high school diploma or GED.

Following the announcement, Mayor Bowser; Deputy Mayor for Education Jennifer Niles; and UDC President Mason will celebrate the academic achievements of the first class of participants in the District of Columbia University Partnership (DC-UP) scholarship program. DC-UP offers scholarships to valedictorians and salutatorians from public and charter schools in the District.
