Alliance Graduate School of Counseling Celebrates Its 20th Anniversary

The Alliance Graduate School of Counseling (AGSC) will observe its 20th anniversary on Friday, September 27, 2019 at Nyack College, 2 Washington Street in the Lower Level. AGSC alumni, friends, family and the campus community are invited to celebrate at this event which will include a reception, catered dinner and musical entertainment.

The graduate level counseling program that founding faculty member, the late Dr. Craig Ellison, envisioned back in 1982, came to fruition on the Rockland County campus in 1999 with just 18 students. Today Dr. Ellison’s legacy continues as AGSC prepares hundreds of men and women who are passionate about the psycho-spiritual needs of hurting people in the church, on the mission field, in urban centers and in local communities.

Tickets for the event are $50 per person; $20 of this amount is tax-deductible. The deadline for purchasing tickets is Friday, September 20.

On the occasion of the anniversary, The Craig Ellison Student Fund has been established to help students in need of financial aid to cover their hooding and graduation ceremony expenses. Supporters unable to attend the celebration, but who wish to honor Dr. Ellison’s work and to invest in the students carrying on his legacy, are welcome to make donations on the convenient and secure online webpage. Checks made payable to Nyack College, with the notation “Craig Ellison Student Fund” in the memo line, can be mailed to Nyack College, NYC Campus, Room 2012, 2 Washington Street, New York, NY 10004.
