Dear Commons Community,
As has been mentioned on this blog, New York City is accepting bids from major universities to build a new college of engineering on Roosevelt Island. Yesterday, Stanford University and the City University of New York anounced that they would establish a collaborative engineering program on the grounds of CUNY’s City College as a precursor to Stanford’s bid. Prior to this it was thought that CUNY would be submitting a proposal (s) in partnership with New York University and/or possibly Columbia University in response to the City’s request for bids.
This all seems very interesting and exciting for the City and for CUNY.
