Hunter College Mission

Hunter College of the City University of New York, a distinguished public university,
values learning in the liberal arts and sciences as a cornerstone of individual development
and a vital foundation for a more just and inclusive society. Continuing our long tradition
of expanding opportunity, we seek students from all backgrounds to engage in a rigorous
educational experience that prepares them to become leaders and innovators in their
communities and in the world.  Hunter also contributes to intellectual discourse by
supporting excellent scholarship and creative activity by its accomplished faculty.

Hunter undergraduate, graduate, and professional curricula challenge students to think
critically - to approach problems from multiple perspectives, distinguish the questions
each raises, and recognize the kinds of evidence each values. The College's academic
programs stress the significance of human diversity, emphasize research and artistic
creation, and invite students to extend their education beyond campus. We cultivate the
qualities our graduates need to thrive in their chosen careers and make a difference as
active citizens.

We embrace our setting at the heart of New York City - we seek to draw on its energy,
capitalize on its remarkable resources, weave it into the fabric of our teaching, research,
and creative expression, and give back to it through our service and citizenship.
