There’s a statue in our harbor that welcomes the world, promises hope, opportunity and a better life. And there is a unique institution in our city that helps all New Yorkers achieve just that. The City University of New York. It has lifted generations of families. Educated millions of people. A recent study showed that CUNY propels almost six times as many low-income students

into the middle class and beyond as all eight Ivy League campuses, plus Duke, M.I.T., Stanford and Chicago combined. It is one of the most noble, worthy and just creations that this city has ever constructed. It is one of the wonders of this city and the envy of the world.


Use it. Support it. Brag about it. But never underestimate it.
