DREAMers around the country face challenges while pursuing their college education. We, at The City University of New York (CUNY) and the Central Office of Student Affairs (COSA) not only understand these challenges but are committed to providing DREAMers with the services, resources, and support needed to succeed in college. Undocumented students contribute richly to our campus communities by contributing to our diversity and teaching us about resilience, persistence, and quite frankly, courage. The CUNY/DREAMers Hub is designed to provide support for the undocumented student population at CUNY with these tools and resources to help enhance their college experience. To do this CUNY has partnered with NYC Government agencies and non-for-profit organizations to make available every possible resource.

Interim Vice Chancellor for Student Affairs
Christopher J. Rosa, Ph.D.
