John Jay College of Criminal Justice is a senior college of the City University of New York (CUNY) led by President Karol V. Mason and an internationally recognized leader in educating for justice. John Jay is a federally-designated Hispanic-serving and Minority-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.


The College participates in the doctoral programs of the Graduate Center of the City University of New York and offers bachelor's and master's degrees 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. John Jay College seeks staff and faculty members who thrive in multicultural academic environments and are committed to access and excellence in higher education.



The John Jay College of Criminal Justice Department of Security, Fire, and Emergency Management invites security experts to apply for a tenure-track position.
