CUNY Graduate School and University Center

The Graduate School and University Center of the City University of New York (known more commonly as the CUNY Graduate Center or the GC) is the main doctorate-granting institution of the City University of New York (while other CUNY schools may house doctoral degree programs, the degrees are granted through the GC). It is housed in the former B. Altman and Company department store on Fifth Avenue in Midtown Manhattan, which it shares with the Science, Industry and Business (SIBL) branch of the New York Public Library and Oxford University Press. The 4,000 students at the GC are mostly doctoral students in one of over 30 programs with the exception of those pursuing degrees in six master’s programs and the CUNY Baccalaureate Program. The facility also houses the production studios and offices of CUNY TV, the University’s 24/7 Educational-access television cable TV channel.

The GC sponsors numerous continuing education programs, all open to the public, including regular lectures from world-renowned scholars, politicians and artists.

The only consortium of its kind in the nation, the school draws its faculty of more than 1,600 members mainly from the CUNY senior colleges and cultural and scientific institutions throughout New York City, and approximately 125 appointed at The Graduate Center. Among the faculty are leading researchers in the humanities, social sciences, hard or “bench” sciences, and engineering.

Faculty members regularly receive prestigious honors and awards. Some recent examples include the Pulitzer Prize, the National Humanities Medal, the National Medal of Science, the Schock Prize, the Bancroft Prize, Grammy Awards, the George Jean Nathan Award for Dramatic Criticism, Guggenheim Fellowships, the New York City Mayor’s Award for Excellence in Science and Technology, the Presidential Early Career Awards for Scientists and Engineers, and memberships in the American Academy of Arts and Sciences and the National Academy of Sciences.
