Connected CUNY is a Strategic Framework that aims to develop initiatives and strengthen partnerships to increase educational and professional opportunities for individual’s that will in turn advance the prosperity of the city and the state.
“The knowledge-based economy requires an increasingly well-educated, globally-oriented, technologically-competent workforce. It requires graduates who are entrepreneurial, innovative and collaborative. To remain a global leader, New York must adapt to these changes with leadership, intellectual capital and a diverse, technology-savvy workforce. In other words, to be successful, New York needs a re-energized CUNY.”
CUNY will invest in and support faculty diversity, research and innovation as engaged scholars, teachers, and members of the community. The Office of Recruitment of Diversity is working collaboratively with the strategic framework teams to achieve our goals.
