ABOUT JOHN JAY COLLEGE
John Jay College of Criminal Justice is a senior college of the
City University of New York (CUNY) and an internationally
recognized leader in educating for justice. Led by President Karol
V. Mason, John Jay is a federally designated Hispanic-serving
institution, it is ranked third in the nation in Black student
success, and it is a top ten institution for promoting student
social mobility. John Jay is proud to serve a diverse and dynamic
student body of 15,000 students that includes nearly fifty percent
students who are first in their family to attend college as well as
students who are immigrants, from low-income families, or from
other historically underrepresented groups in higher education.
The College participates in the doctoral programs of the
Graduate Center of CUNY, and offers bachelor’s and master’s degrees
both in traditional criminal justice-related fields of study as
well as in a robust portfolio of liberal arts and sciences programs
that highlight themes of justice across the arts, sciences,
humanities, and social sciences. The College seeks staff and
faculty members who thrive in multicultural academic environments
and are committed to access and excellence in higher education.
