The Graduate Center draws the majority of its 1700 faculty members from the CUNY colleges and from cultural and scientific institutions throughout New York City. The Graduate Center also employs a core faculty of some 130 scholars.
Beginning in 1999, the University and the Graduate Center made a commitment to strengthening this cadre. Since that time, the Graduate Center has added dozens of new faculty members across its disciplinary spectrum.
The range of interest represented by these colleagues is strikingly diverse, but three elements unite them: scholarly excellence; a broad interdisciplinary vision; and a deeply felt commitment to doctoral education.
