As we approach 2012, we congratulate the colleges of CUNY for raising more than $2.1 billion since the launch of the “Invest in CUNY” Campaign! This past decade of philanthropic growth has been a key driver of the CUNY renaissance. Enrollment has grown; student awards reflect increasing excellence; the Macaulay Honors College, the Graduate School of Journalism, and the CUNY School of Public Health have opened; and the New Community College is preparing to open its doors. Many of our campuses are being reborn with growth in full-time faculty, scholarship programs and new and renovated buildings.
The support of our committed alumni has been the catalyst for these many advances. The gifts and events highlighted in this newsletter bear testimony to this growth. During the coming months the CUNY advancement offices will be planning for the final four years of our campaign and on January 25th Chancellor Goldstein and the college presidents will offer an evening recognition event for all our college foundation board members as well as our alumni, corporate and foundation donors. We look forward to celebrating with you.
