The Urban Policy and Planning Department at Hunter College Needs Your Support!

We need your support to fulfill our mission of training future leaders who are passionate about addressing the many challenges that today’s cities face while advocating for community empowerment, social justice and equity.

Your contribution is instrumental to the essential yet often overlooked aspects of our department’s operations. While Hunter College and the City University of New York (CUNY) graciously provide funding for our basic infrastructure, such as faculty salaries and core resources, we rely on your generosity to finance additional elements that enhance the student experience and enrich our academic community, including:

  • General Operating Expenses: Your donation allows us to allocate resources to activities that greatly impact the daily life of our department, including hosting public events that foster intellectual discourse; organizing social gatherings that cultivate a sense of community and celebrate student accomplishments; upgrading furniture in our student lounge; providing honoraria to guest speakers in courses; and supporting incidental costs of studio and workshop courses. Your support enables us to offer enriching experiences beyond the essentials.
  • Scholarships for Students: Help us provide invaluable support to students and recruit top candidates for our graduate programs. Your contribution will help us to better compete with our private-school peer institutions who can offer generous financial packages that offset their much higher tuition to attract top students.

Thank you for considering a donation and for being a vital part of our academic community.
