Located in the heart of Manhattan and set within the large and multi-campus City University of New York, the Graduate Center fosters advanced graduate education, original research and scholarship, innovative University-wide programs, and vibrant public events that draw upon and contribute to the complex communities of New York City and beyond.

Through a broad range of nationally prominent doctoral programs, the Graduate Center prepares students to be scholars, teachers, experts, and leaders in the academy; in the arts; and in the private, nonprofit, and government sectors. Committed to CUNY’s historic mission of educating the children of “the whole people,” the Graduate Center provides access to graduate education for diverse groups of highly talented students, including those who have been underrepresented in higher education.
