Despite having an undocumented student population of more than 5,000, and more than a third of undergraduate students who are born outside the mainland U.S., the entire CUNY system has only two such “immigrant student success centers.”

A banner hung at the City College campus entrance earlier this month. The school has since announced plans to open a center for immigrant students.

City College of New York (CCNY) will create an Immigrant Student Success Center, a one-stop shop for undocumented college students, City Limits has learned—following five years, countless hours of meetings and two-tenure presidencies of the CCNY Dream Team club, a group of students that’s been campaigning for it.

“CCNY is in the process of trying to build an immigrant student success center,” President Vincent Boudreau told City Limits via email. He’d met with CCNY Dream Team students in March about the proposal, similar to one presented to him in 2019.

“Next [fiscal] year, we will be using grant monies to turn that into an immigrant student success center—but we literally have no clear idea where funding for that will come from after next year, but I’m looking for that,” he added.

Despite having an undocumented student population of more than 5,000, and with more than a third of undergraduates born outside the U.S. mainland, the entire City University of New York system (CUNY) system has only two such immigrant student success centers, at John Jay and Brooklyn College.

Public university systems elsewhere have opened similar offices: California had 46 such centers five years ago, and at that time, Texas had three.
