From the President
A graduate school of arts and sciences, a hub of some 30 centers of applied and theoretical research, and a platform for performance, discussion and debate, the Graduate Center is a community of 7,000 students, scholars and researchers dedicated to the idea that learning is a public good.

I invite you to learn more about our community and, I hope, to join us as we pursue the life of the mind in the heart of New York City.
