BROOKLYN - Brooklyn College students, faculty and alumni protested today against the possible move of the college's Graduate Center for Worker Education.

The program is tailored for working adults. Students say the school has been on a campaign to cut down services.

The center is located in Downtown Manhattan, a convenient location for those that hold a full-time job in or near the city.

Administrators say the master's program at the center will be brought to Brooklyn College's campus, which will be better for students. Protesters worry that moving the program will put it out of reach for those who work in the city.

Protesters say they've seen staff let go, advising services reduced and classes canceled with no notice to students.

They're demanding that the school back off what they see as an attempt to destroy the program.
