Amesite Announces Contract for Pilot Program with the City College of New York to Provide Innovative Learning Programs for Underserved Communities
November 3, 2021

DETROIT, November 3, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- Amesite Inc. (NASDAQ: AMST), the leading artificial intelligence software company offering a cloud-based learning platform and content creation services for business, university, non-profit and government agency learning and upskilling, announced today it is launching a pilot program with The City College of New York (CCNY), part of the City University of New York (CUNY), the largest urban university system in the US. The innovative pilot program is an introduction to a broader curriculum under development by the CUNY Institute for Urban Systems (CIUS) at CCNY’s Grove School of Engineering. 

CCNY and CIUS will equip historically underserved communities with analytical and operational skills through innovative curricula, simulation-based training, and experiential learning to help them pursue career paths in the rapidly changing urban infrastructure sector. The initiative is led by Dr. Robert Paaswell, Distinguished Professor of Civil Engineering, an internationally known expert in infrastructure and former CEO of the Chicago Transit Authority.

Dr. Paaswell commented, “We are excited to launch this program with our technology partner, Amesite. Working with them, we have accelerated our delivery timetable, because they bring us the capability to rapidly launch content and onboard student cohorts. Their use of artificial intelligence is very important to us, as it enables us to deliver vital, fresh content to our learners in the rapidly evolving area of urban infrastructure”

"We are thrilled to work with The City College of New York to deliver on its mission of bringing affordable transportation and infrastructure training to underserved learners in New York City,” commented Dr. Ann Marie Sastry, founder and CEO of Amesite. “Many U.S. cities face incredible infrastructure challenges, and workforce training is often the bottleneck in overcoming them. By delivering training to underserved learners who can execute on solutions, cities are solving two problems at once: bringing greater economic security to better-trained workforces, and creating more efficient, sustainable and future-ready infrastructures for taxpayers.”

In July 2021, the New York City Department of City Planning announced a $133.7 billion, 10-year strategy for building and enhancing city infrastructure, including roads, schools, bridges, water and sewer facilities, and transportation systems in neighborhoods across the five boroughs. In 2015, the nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office estimated that every dollar spent on infrastructure brought an economic benefit of up to $2.20. With an unfunded infrastructure gap of more than $2 trillion, according to the American Society of Civil Engineers, new infrastructure spending could be key to fueling a new wave of economic growth in the coming the years.
