We believe that when journalism and journalism education does not reflect and serve the communities they cover, it hurts our communities – especially people of color, people from working class backgrounds, LGBTQ people and women. These communities are at the heart of what we as journalists and as a journalism institution care most about. We strongly encourage applications from members of these and other marginalized communities. 

CUNY encourages people with disabilities, minorities, veterans and women to apply. At CUNY, Italian Americans are also included among our protected groups. Applicants and employees will not be discriminated against on the basis of any legally protected category, including sexual orientation or gender identity. EEO/AA/Vet/Disability Employer.
