Diversifying doctoral education

The City University of New York System has one of the most diverse student populations in American higher education. Shouldn't it have one of the most diverse faculty populations? We think so.

THE CUNY Pipeline Program breaks down barriers to graduate education so diverse CUNY students can become the next generation of teachers, researchers, and mentors.

Are you a Brainiac? Do you eat knowledge for breakfast, lunch, AND dinner? Is your idea of "light reading" a couple of academic journal articles?

You might be just what the Pipeline Program is looking for. 

Help us spread the word about the Pipeline Program.

Print out the Pipeline Info Poster to post around your campus.
