For our University, diversity is an indispensable precondition that enables us to capitalize on our various skills, perspectives and experiences so that we can better advance CUNY’s fundamental educational mission. A productively diverse and inclusive CUNY community makes us better at what we do, makes us broader and deeper thinkers, more effective collaborators, more creative teachers, and more understanding colleagues and friends.
CUNY is committed to fostering inclusion and excellence throughout the University, to strengthening our efforts to recruit a talented and diverse faculty and workforce and providing a supportive environment to retain and empower those we recruit, and to enhancing CUNY’s status as a national and global leader in advancing diversity, equity and access.
– Gloriana B. Waters, Vice Chancellor
