Welcome Message from the President
When you step through the doorway at John Jay – either online or in person at our mid-Manhattan campus – you will be struck by the energy that pervades the College. It’s the energy of our world-renowned and engaging faculty; of our high-achieving international student body and our champion athletes; of our commitment to public service and our enduring mission of “educating for justice.”
John Jay, a college within the City University of New York, is committed to providing you with many educational opportunities. You’ll find a variety of traditional and nontraditional learning options – from wi-fi classrooms to study abroad to internships and cooperative education. At John Jay, research-driven criminal justice studies are skillfully integrated with a vibrant liberal arts education. It’s a combination aimed at preparing our students to go forth and serve – and succeed – in the world outside our doors.
From this website you’ll come away with more than just a sense of what John Jay is. You’ll acquire a keen appreciation of where we’ve been, and where we’re going. Our past is a testimony to the enduring vision of those who founded this institution. Our future is alive with the determination to fulfill and expand that vision.
We invite you to join us and share in the excitement.
Karol V. Mason
