A Credential Program for Students with Intellectual Disabilities

Overview
CUNY Unlimited is a credential program in development through a grant partnership with the University of Rochester, AHRC NYC, the NYC Department of Education, and the JFK, Jr. Institute for Worker Education. Students currently enrolled in model demonstration programs at five CUNY campuses prepare for employment by participating in academic courses, co-curricular activities, and vocational experiences aligned with their interests.

The Credential
Beginning in 2020, students accepted into the CUNY Unlimited program will be eligible to earn a CUNY Unlimited Achievement Certificate, capturing their college experience in a way that is valuable to the student, their communities, and future employers. Students will participate in CUNY classes and experience college life while developing the skills to take on meaningful and productive roles in their communities.
