The CAPE Commitment:

  1. Supporting you in your academic, personal and professional pursuits; 
  2. Assisting in designing a life plan for individual success both in and out of the classroom; 
  3. Providing tools and resources to help you start, and direct, your successful journey as you venture into your career here at Elmira College.
