Veterans BrochureAbout Us

At the City University of New York (CUNY) we welcome and support veterans, reservists and dependents on our 25 campuses across the five boroughs of New York City. We are proud of the level of diversity and academic excellence that our 3,400 veterans (800 of which are women veterans) bring to our campuses and recognize the contribution that they make as citizens and students. We are dedicated to fostering a sense of community and to developing a channel of communication among veteran and reservist students, and with faculty, staff and administration. Read More

The CUNY Office of Veterans Affairs (COVA) orchestrates initiatives to retain student veterans and their family members by implementing best practices and complying with federal, state and institutional policies such as Executive Order 13607 – Principles of Excellence, the DOD MOU and the 8 Keys to Veterans Success.  Working collaboratively with community agencies, COVA aims to increase awareness and sensitivity to the unique needs of veterans, and provide resiliency-based social and academic support to encourage post-graduate success.
