Now, thanks to entrepreneurship training that CUNY leads with Columbia and New York Universities, they also discuss commercializing the device.

New York City Department of Education Chancellor Dennis M. Walcott today announced the creation of three new Early College and Career Technical Education High Schools to open in September 2014. In collaboration with the City University of New York and a set of high-profile industry partners—Microsoft Corp. and New York-Presbyterian Hospital, SAP, and the American Association of Advertising Agencies—the schools will deliver a six-year, career-focused program that is aligned with the Common Core Standards. The new schools will be modeled on P-TECH, the successful 9-14 school created by the New York City Department of Education, the City University of New York, New York City College of Technology and IBM in 2011. IBM, the City’s first industry partner, guarantees that graduates will be first in line for jobs. Chancellor Walcott made the announcement at Microsoft’s Manhattan offices with City University of New York Chancellor William P. Kelly, IBM’s Stanley Litow, and other industry partners.

Researchers have long puzzled over what happens to the turtles during these “lost years,” as they were dubbed decades ago. Now a new study published in the Proceedings of the Royal Society B outlines where they likely would be based on ocean currents.

Against a national backdrop of steadily rising college costs and soaring student-loan debt, The City University of New York offers the best value in U.S. higher education today – high-quality academics plus a “safety net” of remarkably affordable tuition, tax credits and financial aid that make CUNY students much less likely to borrow for their education, according to a new report.
