Project REACH & ASD

Project REACH: Resources and Education on Autism as CUNY’s Hallmark is a university-wide project funded by the FAR Fund created to enhance CUNY’s capacity to support its growing population of college students with autism spectrum disorders (ASD) and to educate faculty and staff about students with ASD.

At the core of CUNY’s mission is to provide affordable and accessible higher education opportunities to all students, especially those who have historically not had access to higher education opportunities -- like students on the autism spectrum.
