For 170 years, the City College of New York (originally founded as The Free Academy) has welcomed generations of students to our campus to learn under the guidance of world-class faculty. Together, our students and faculty look to address some of the greatest challenges faced by communities both local to the Harlem and greater New York area, and around the world.
It is in keeping with the tradition of providing access to excellence for our students that the City College Office of Institutional Advancement and Communications works to develop and support a strong foundation of resources required to fulfill the educational mission of the City College of New York. Our goal is to continue to serve the campus community through rigorous fund development, donor stewardship, and alumni/student mentoring programs as well as providing a campus-wide marketing and communications program that focuses on consistent messaging and identity, public affairs, publications, advertising, and online communication tools. We work with the leadership of City College in providing an integrated marketing and communications strategy that supports the college's strategic goal of remaining a nationally recognized institution devoted to providing a pathway to social mobility for our students and alumni and disseminating the research and creative activity of our faculty.
