Led by the CUNY Office of Continuing Education and Workforce Programs, the CUNY Tech Consortium is a collaborative group of CUNY senior and community colleges committed to significantly increasing the number of CUNY students and graduates who are prepared for jobs and careers in New York City’s tech and innovation sector.
Working together to identify and implement system-wide and college-level strategies, the CTC supports re-envisioning and enhancing CUNY’s tech-related programs by updating curricula, actively engaging with the local tech ecosystem, and better connecting students and graduates to internships and jobs in New York City’s tech sector. The Consortium offers a forum where CUNY Central and its college members can learn about tech-related programs and initiatives across CUNY, launch new initiatives that address system-wide opportunities and challenges, and partner with employers, intermediary organizations such as the Tech Talent Pipeline (TTP), and industry partners regarding workforce needs.
To promote collaboration and system-level problem-solving, the Consortium supports three working groups the focus on three key strategic areas: Curriculum Development and Pedagogy, Associate-to-Bachelor Transfer, and Work-based Learning and Career Readiness.
With support, in part, by the JPMorgan Chase Foundation, the CUNY Tech Consortium are helping to equip CUNY students and graduates with the technical and professional skills necessary to support and drive tech innovation in New York City.
