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.”
