City University of New York

John Jay College of Criminal Justice is a campus of the City University of New York (CUNY), the nation’s leading urban public university system serving students at 23 colleges and institutions: 11 senior colleges including John Jay College, six community colleges, the William E. Macaulay Honors College at CUNY, the doctorate-granting Graduate School and University Center, the City University of New York School of Law, CUNY Graduate School of Journalism, and the Sophie Davis School of Biomedical Education. More than 260,000 degree-credit students and 273,000 continuing and professional education students are enrolled at campuses located in all five New York City boroughs. CUNY students hail from 205 countries.

Research Foundation of CUNY

Most of the research projects housed at the Research & Evaluation Center are received and managed by the Research Foundation of the City University of New York (RF-CUNY), a not-for-profit educational corporation that manages private and government sponsored programs at The City University of New York (CUNY). Since 1963, the RF has provided CUNY (and more recently, non-CUNY clients) with the administrative infrastructure that supports sponsored program activities.
