The City University of New York is committed to supporting the research and scholarly pursuits of the CUNY community. The Researcher Handbook has been developed to inform researchers about CUNY’s various research programs and services and to provide information regarding policies to ensure that research at the University is conducted in accordance with the highest ethical standards. The University seeks to promote an active, creative research environment for CUNY faculty and students. The Researcher Handbook serves as a useful tool in achieving that goal, and should serve as a resource for the CUNY research community.
