The City University of New York is pleased to announce The CUNY Immigrant Education Initiative, a new program funded by the New York City Council.

Priorities of the initiative include:

  • Increase the number of seats across the city so all 16,000 potentially Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) – eligible New Yorkers can enroll in an appropriate educational program
  • Offer more adult education classes in students’ native languages
  • Provide adult educators with high-quality professional development
  • Do intensive outreach to bring eligible New Yorkers forward and connect them to educational, legal, and social services
