Macaulay Honors College

New York, NY 10023

Students at Macaulay Honors College, founded in 2001 by former Chancellor Matthew Gold- stein, enroll in one of eight CUNY senior colleges (Baruch, Brooklyn, City, Hunter, John Jay, Lehman, Queens, or Staten Island) and earn a degree conferred jointly by their home campus and Macaulay. Through the unique Macaulay advising program, each student develops a coordinated, individualized academic program that includes research, global learning, graduate and professional mentoring, community service, and close faculty-student collaboration. Innovative seminars designed to nurture critical thinking skills link students with the history, arts, and re- sources of New York City. Students learn from master teachers, whose special experiences in- spire and motivate them to explore new ideas and apply that knowledge to real-life experiences. Macaulay students are awarded a full-tuition merit scholarship,* giving them the freedom to pursue their academic goals without financial burdens. Macaulay further enriches students’ academic experience by providing a laptop and technology support, and an Opportunities Fund to support study abroad, service, or research opportunities.

*Students must meet CUNY New York State residency requirements for in-state tuition to receive the full-tuition scholarship.
