It is a hub of intellectual and artistic activity and a community partner and source of economic impact and job creation for the greater Staten Island area.

CUNY Start is an innovative college transition program that provides intensive preparation in academic reading, writing, math, and college success. The program enrolls students who have been accepted to CUNY but are not yet ready for college-level work based on their scores on the CUNY Assessment Tests. CUNY Start offers two program models: a full-time program for 25 hours a week that provides instruction in both math and writing/reading and a part-time program for 12 hours a week that provides instruction in either math or reading and writing. Both programs are supported by well integrated academic advisement components. The program is overseen by the University Office of Academic Affairs in partnership with seven CUNY colleges. This year, CUNY Start will serve over 3,000 students.
