Higher education should be transformative, enriching our lives in countless and sometimes unexpected ways.
At The City University of New York, we believe deeply that every deserving student should have the opportunity to pursue an innovative and challenging course of study. Our prize-winning faculty are leaders in their disciplines and bring experience and creativity to the classroom. Our students, who reflect New York City's own rich diversity, pursue studies in more than 1,400 academic programs. In fact, more and more students have made CUNY their preferred destination: our enrollment is at its highest level in more than three decades.
CUNY's 24 colleges and professional schools, spread throughout the five boroughs of New York City, together offer a full range of educational options, including associate, bachelor's, master's and doctoral degrees; online degrees and courses; certificate programs; and continuing and professional education. Our hundreds of thousands of successful alumni—from teachers, artists, and accountants to nurses, business owners, and engineers—are a testament to the University's pivotal role in helping all students advance their learning and their lives.
I invite you to visit our campuses, meet our staff and faculty, and become part of our vibrant community.
