The Central Office of Academic Affairs supports Teacher Education programs across the University. CUNY enrolls more than 16,000 students in education programs: one-third of these students study at the undergraduate level and two-thirds are graduate students. With a commitment to teaching and learning, our campuses prepare a culturally diverse pool of students to be effective educators in a variety of settings. The Teacher Education portfolio within Academic Affairs also includes grant-funded programs, research initiatives and policy issues.
CUNY’s Teacher Education Grid outlines programs across CUNY at every degree level. More information can be found on campus websites, below.
Mayor de Blasio announced NYC Men Teach to put an additional 1,000 men of color in the pipeline to become NYC public school teachers over the next three years. The Fall 2017 application is now open for all CUNY students interested in becoming teachers under this initiative.
