Division of Science

Science students doing an experiment

City College's Division of Science is one of the active research centers in New York, with almost $20 million in funded research, primarily from the National Science Foundation and the National Institutes of Health. Our faculty includes two members of the National Academy of Science, a member of the National Academy of Engineering, and six University Distinguished Professors. Ten Nobel Prize winners studied at City College and graduated from one of the Division’s science and mathematics programs.

Our faculty serves on governing councils of prestigious scientific organizations, as well as conducts cutting-edge research in fields ranging from climate change to structural biology, to sustainable energy. In the past eight years, the Division has produced two Rhodes Scholars, as well as several Goldwater and Truman scholars. Our achievements are inseparable from your support, which provides the resources for us to seed research and recruit top educators and students.

With the launch of the Center for Discovery and Innovation and the City University of New York’s Advanced Science Research Center, City College students and faculty have gained access to an unprecedented opportunity to work in state-of-the-art laboratories led by prestigious scientific leaders. With your continued partnership, the Division of Science can build on its proud legacy into a prouder future.


Thanks to donor support, we have been able to:

  • Establish and name the first Martin and Michele Cohen Dean of Science.

  • Attract talented undergraduate and graduate students to City College through the establishment of special initiatives, including the Division of Science Graduate Students Program and the Chleck Family Scholarship and Graduate Research Fellowship Program.

  • Create the ConEd Scholarship Fund to provide support for undergraduate students majoring in the fields of science, technology, or mathematics.
