CUNY K-16 Initiatives
16 Court St
The City University of New York’s Office K-16 Initiatives supports the partnership between CUNY and the New York City Department of Education—the two largest education systems of their kind in the country. As part of the University’s recently announced strategic framework, CUNY pledged to work with its partners to help ensure that a larger number of entering students are prepared, starting with early education and assisting them up to and through high school.
CUNY K-16 Initiatives creates innovative pathways for young New Yorkers to envision and achieve success by engaging strategic partners in confronting systemic educational inequities.
CUNY’s Office of K-16 Initiatives recognizes that one of the best predictors of college success is entering prepared for college-level studies. We are home to a group of innovative programs that share a common goal: helping NYC public school students make a successful transition to college, careers and life beyond. We support the city’s commitment to equity by ensuring high quality transition programs help eliminate achievement gaps between racial, ethnic, and socio-economic groups. Our programs are nationally recognized for their commitment to long-term student success.
