Celebrating Research at CUNY

SUM brings the research, scholarship, and creative work of faculty and students at The City University of New York (CUNY) — the nation’s largest urban university — to the world.

SUM is a CUNY initiative. The project team, which is based at The Graduate Center, CUNY, collaborates with colleagues throughout CUNY to make important academic work accessible to the public.

SUM is not an acronym. In Latin, it means “I am.” In English, it means “the total.” 
For us, it’s the collective impact of research from the CUNY community.
