Diversifying CUNY’s Leadership: A CUNY-Harvard Consortium
Co-sponsored by the Offices of Academic Affairs and Recruitment and Diversity
Diversifying CUNY’s Leadership: A CUNY-Harvard Consortium is a new professional development program for CUNY faculty and staff who are interested in a career in higher education leadership – with a particular emphasis on those interested in leadership positions within CUNY. The program, which aims to cultivate a diverse group of future leaders, supports and celebrates CUNY’s commitment to a diverse community that is inclusive of all groups and individuals. This program is funded by a generous grant from the Harvard Club of New York Foundation and matching funds from CUNY.

- Shadow a CUNY administrator in 2018-2019
- Participate in cohort meetings with CUNY Trustees, Presidents, Vice Chancellors and Vice Presidents
