About Faculty and Student Research
The Graduate Center, CUNY stands at the apex of
the CUNY system, a consortium of junior and senior
colleges and graduate and professional schools that
together constitute the country's third largest
university system, and the largest urban system.
Because of this consortial arrangement, The Graduate
Center is able to draw from the almost 6,000 full-time
CUNY faculty, as well as the 112 with central appointments.
In total The Graduate Center enjoys a faculty of
1,600 and a student body of over 4,000.
In order to tap into the critical mass of scholars
studying a range of topics relevant to philanthropy
and civil society, CPCS holds seminars, conducts
collaborative research projects and offers fellowships.
The aim is to institutionalize the study of philanthropy
and civil society and to broaden their scope within
the social sciences and humanities.
