CUNY's decade-long, multibillion-dollar capital investment program is hard at work modernizing aged facilities and constructing state-of-the-art laboratories, libraries and gathering places in ways that benefit all 24 campuses in all five boroughs. This year, projects that are transforming the CUNY experience were completed at John Jay College of Criminal Justice and the new CUNY School of Public Health at Hunter College in East Harlem, a new building that is also the new home of Hunter College’s highly regarded Lois V. and Samuel J. Silberman School of Social Work. Meanwhile, renovations, expansions and upgrades continue at sites such as the relocated CUNY School of Law in Long Island City. About half of CUNY’s new buildings are dedicated to science, most prominently the $744 million CUNY Advanced Science Research Center, that will create a new home for pioneering research University-wide on the City College campus. A new Fiterman Hall is rising near Borough of Manhattan Community College and a new academic building is near completion at the Bronx Community College campus. All told, $4.4 billion in major projects are completed, under way or planned for CUNY campuses.
