CUNY pride programs


In support of Pride Month, CUNY issued a statement reaffirming “its commitment to its LGBTQI+ students with a wide array of supportive programs tailored to provide them with career engagement opportunities and leadership skill development.”

CUNY highlighted the “CUNY LGBTQI+ Summer Internship program, launched last year to provide career engagement opportunities for LGBTQI+ students across the private, cultural and nonprofit sectors,” and said that “the CUNY LGBTQI+ Advocacy Academy has been training selected students to serve as advocates and leaders through a non-credit certification course taught by Queens College Distinguished Lecturer Jimmy Vacca, a former New York City Council member from the Bronx.”

In addition, “the David Mixner Fellowship, provides paid opportunities to work with organizations at the forefront of the LGBTQI+ rights movement. The fellowship is open to full-time City College undergraduates who identify as LGBTQI+ and want to work on LGBTQI+ advocacy. Advisers work with selected students to connect them with organizations across the city and the country, based on their areas of interest.
