Coordinated Undergraduate Education (CUE)
Directed by the Office of the Provost, Coordinated Undergraduate Education (CUE) is an initiative established in 2004 by The City University of New York(CUNY) to integrate several pre-existing CUNY-funded special programs. The CUE Initiative reduces redundancy among these programs by creating a clear organizational alignment of services and opportunities. For students, CUE provides a more coherent experience by improving communication and relationships among formerly separate programs. For faculty and administrators, CUE supports the coordination of curriculum development and professional development activities.
Several special programs offered by New York City College of Technology ("City Tech") with funding from CUNY are part of the (CUE) Initiative. These programs support a smooth transition from pre-freshman entry to college graduation. Students begin their journey at City Tech through the New Student Center, Testing, and the First Year Summer Program. Additionally, the First Year Learning Communities, Writing Across the Curriculum, the Faculty Center for Teaching and Learning, the Learning Center, General Education, and the Honors Scholars Program all contribute to a solid, well-rounded college experience. These programs share a conceptual framework that guides students’ development in critical thinking, communication and problem-solving abilities that help them succeed at New York City College of Technology and beyond.
