            John Jay College of Criminal Justice

            An international leader in educating for justice, John Jay College of Criminal Justice offers a rich
            liberal arts and professional studies curriculum to a diverse student body in a vibrant urban setting.
            In teaching and research, the College defines justice both narrowly, with an eye
            to the needs of criminal justice and public service agencies, and broadly and
            humanistically, in terms of enduring questions about fairness, equality and the rule of law.

            John Jay College has an ethnically diverse student body of more than 14,000 students. The
            majority are students who plan careers in public service. Many are members
            of uniformed criminal justice and fire agencies.

            The strength, reputation and vitality of the College are embodied in the commitment to academic
            excellence maintained by its faculty— many of whom are recognized experts in their
            fields. They conduct critical research in areas such as violent behavior, DNA analysis, drug abuse
            trends, child aggression, sexual abuse, eyewitness reliability, criminal law, police methods
            and crime reduction strategy.

           Hostos Community College

            Consistent with the mission of CUNY to provide access to higher education for all who
            seek it, Hostos Community College was established in the South Bronx to meet the higher
            educational needs of community residents, many of whom have been excluded from higher
            education, historically speaking.

            Named in honor of Eugenio María de Hostos, the Puerto Rican educator,
            writer and patriot, Hostos Community College enrolls about 5,500 students, serving a diverse
            student body, the highest concentration of whom come from Puerto Rico, the Dominican Republic
            and South and Central America.

            The College takes pride in its historical role in educating students from diverse ethnic, racial, cultural
            and linguistic backgrounds. An integral part of fulfilling its mission is to provide transitional
            language instruction for all English as a Second Language (ESL) learners along
            with Spanish/English bilingual education offerings to foster a multicultural environment for all students.
