The City College Partnership

The City College Partnership is dedicated to building and strengthening relationships within the campus community and the surrounding neighborhoods. The City College of New York boasts one on the most diverse campuses in the US. Because of this, our students require a wide range of resources and support services to enable them to make the most of their higher education experience. The City College Partnership facilitates opportunities for students to be more active in their communities, engage with community oeganizations and political leaders, and have their voices heard. Similarly, the Partnership bridges a network for both the college and external communities to collaborate on important initiatives that result in joint and mutual success.

Some of our current initiatives include:

  • Financial Coach Services
  • Benefits Coach Services
  • Community and Student Empowerment & Civic Engagement Series
  • CUNY Adopt-A-District 
  • Supporting Our Students 
  • Dyslexia Plus in Public Schools

 

HIghlighted Past Events

Student Week of Action
The City College Partnership initiated the college's first Student Week of Action in an effort to maximize student leaders' ability to lead, represent, recruit and engage with the student body and community. The planning committee consists of a cross section of civically-minded on-campus student organizations. These student organizations include Undergraduate Student Government, Graduate Student Council, American Civil Liberties Union-CCNY Chapter, Roosevelt Institute and New York for Public Interest Research Group, NYPIRG.

Through extensive collaboration in developing the activities and planning SWOA, all students were provided with the opportunity to engage with the community, interact with elected officials and involve their peers in civic engagement. The Student Week of Action took place Nov. 3rd to Nov. Nov. 6th. As a result of the planning committee's hard work, CCNY hosted a total of 7 prominent elected officials. Each of whom graciously interacted and engaged with students in a number for forums.

Our guests included: Congressman Charles B. Rangel, Manhattan Borough President Gale Brewer, Senator Bill Perkins, Assemblyman Keith L.T. Wright, Councilmember Mark Levine, Councilmember Inez Barron and former Councilmember Robert Jackson. The themes for SWOA included: Get Out The Vote Rally, Pick A Cause Coffee Clutch, Dialogue with Elected Officials, Funding Your Education, and Community Service- Appreciation Notes for Veterans/ Raising $ for LGBTQ Runaway Youth.
