A new collaboration between Stanford and the City College of New York aims to promote graduate-level humanities research among minority and first-generation college students. Through the exchange program, three Stanford graduate students are currently teaching classes at CCNY, a position granting them access to a city considered one of the world’s centers for humanities research.
University President John Hennessy met with the Board of Trustees this Tuesday to discuss preparations for the potential New York City campus as well as future renovations for Stanford’s main campus.
An agreement for collaboration among Stanford University, the City University of New York (CUNY) and the City College of New York (CCNY) recently passed, furthering progress toward the possible Stanford NYC campus. While the collaboration came about as a result of Stanford’s proposal to build an applied-sciences campus in NYC, CUNY and CCNY will not be submitting the proposal with Stanford.
