Current Initiatives

Academic Technology AT CUNY

The City University of New York is engaged in several major University-wide academic technology initiatives. They all are collaborations across campuses using the latest means and tools to improve instruction and access. >>


Black Male Initiative

An important new initiative intended to increase, encourage, and support the inclusion and educational success of under-represented groups in higher education, in particular black males. All programs and activities of the Black Male Initiative are open to all academically eligible students, faculty and staff, without regard to race, gender, national origin, or other characteristic. >>



Collegiate Learning Assessment

The Collegiate Learning Assessment (CLA) provides an authentic means for measuring college student abilities in critical thinking, analytic reasoning, problem solving, and written communications - key skills that are emphasized across colleges and across academic programs. CUNY colleges administer the CLA to representative samples of freshmen as they enter in the fall, and then to senior students as they approach completion of their degrees in the spring. >>



Latino Faculty Initiative

Established in Fall 2006, the Latino Faculty Initiative seeks to link qualified Latino(a) candidates to faculty positions within CUNY. To this end, the initiative will engage in outreach and recruitment, and work with CUNY colleges to advance their faculty’s diversity. >>



Math Matters at CUNY

Incorporating contributions from departments across the University, the Central Office, and external partners, CUNY promotes excellence and achievement in the teaching and learning of mathematics. >>
