Thanks to the support of generous donors, City College is home to 21 research institutes in the sciences, engineering and social sciences. None of these institutions would have been created, and our ongoing investigations in such areas as nanoscience, photonics, alternative energy, water resources, transportation and public policy would be significantly limited if not for philanthropy.
The establishment of faculty research funds, professorships, and named chairs has served as the crucial lynchpin for many of City College’s educational achievements to date. Our dedicated supporters allow City College's talented faculty to enhance our research capacity and maximize our impact in academia. Our faculty members include Fulbright scholars, Guggenheim fellows, MacArthur “Genius” Grant recipients and winners of the Pulitzer Prize, Emmy Awards, GRAMMY Awards and National Book Awards. In addition, current faculty members collectively hold 12 memberships in the National Academy of Science, National Academy of Engineering and Institute of Medicine.
Supporting our research efforts is an unwavering endorsement of our faculty. Help us provide the resources they need to pursue the critical investigations and activities to push their fields to the next level of excellence.
