Research & Evaluation
The Office of the Senior University Dean for Academic Affairs oversees a wide range of programs and initiatives at the University, including adult literacy, college transition, early childhood professional development, workforce development and continuing education, collaborative programs with the New York City public school system, as well as special programs such as the CUNY Language Immersion Program (CLIP), Accelerated Study in Associates Program (ASAP) and CUNY Start. The role of research and evaluation in these various programs and initiatives is a critical one, as research provides the data and information essential to develop and monitor effective programs and partnerships.
The Research and Evaluation (R&E) Unit, situated within the Office of the Senior University Dean for Academic Affairs, supports a variety of educational and workforce development programs by providing data and information essential to developing and improving programs and partnerships.
