Hostos Community College is in the South Bronx, enrolls more than 7,000 students, and serves a predominantly Hispanic population. Hostos has long housed an impactful Writing Across the Curriculum Program that trains GC doctoral students to consult with faculty on approaches to writing instruction. In addition, Hostos has developed a wide range of online and hybrid courses in the humanities, an innovative curriculum that includes a vibrant arts center and a program in Game Design.
Guttman Community College, located blocks from the Graduate Center on 41st Street, is CUNY's newest and smallest community college, enrolling just under 1,000 students. Students at Guttman enjoy access to an innovative First-Year Experience curriculum built around a City Seminar that introduces students to humanistic inquiry through exploration of historical and contemporary urban issues.
Borough of Manhattan Community College is located in Tribeca, and is the largest college at CUNY, enrolling over 26,000 undergraduates. Several BMCC faculty teach and participate in programs at the Graduate Center, and many are GC graduates. BMCC has led efforts in New York City to help Ph.D. candidates envision careers in community college contexts. BMCC has also been at the forefront of the university's work to reduce the costs of attendance for undergraduates by transitioning course readings to open educational resources.
Finally, LaGuardia Community College, the Graduate Center's partner on the first iteration of the CUNY Humanities Alliance, enrolls just under 20,000 students. Continuing the partnership with LaGuardia will allow us to build on the current momentum of the program, and extend it into academic support spaces such as the Center for Teaching and Learning, the Writing Across the Curriculum Program, and the Accessibility Services Office.
