Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Resource Hub

Our commitment to diversity, equity, and inclusion is more than a statement of what we value. It is who we are. We thrive as a community when we respect and honor our differences.

We value the unique experiences and perspectives of students and staff. A place where everyone belongs.

We have curated a list of resources to help you expand your knowledge, get engaged with the community, and support you as a member of our community.

As our community looks towards a more inclusive and equitable future, it’s important to take stock of who we are, and where we’ve been.


Macaulay is committed to supporting our diverse student body through the various student-led communities and networks.  We encourage you to explore and engage with these student groups through the various events they host, by joining their efforts, and/or promoting their work.


Macaulay has always been committed to dismantling racist systems of thought and learning. We encourage you to explore a range of resources available to you at Macaulay and throughout the University system.


Student government represents the needs and concerns of the student body, and often serves as advocates for change.


Macaulay is committed to providing a safe and accommodating academic and social experience for students living with disabilities.

  • CUNY Disability Services – a central page for resources, including the following:
  • CUNY LEADS – free academic and career advisement and opportunities
  • Project REACH – resources and education for students with autism

We encourage every student to sign up with their campus Office of Disability Services to receive any needed accommodations. For reasons of privacy, faculty and staff are not required to ask you if you need accommodations, so it’s up to each student to seek services.

CARA’s work confronts the gap in post-secondary guidance faced by first-generation college students in New York City.


We are committed to advancing gender equality on campus and have gathered a list of programs, services, and resources to promote awareness and activism around women’s and gender equity issues.


At CUNY, we believe in the power of education to fuel both
social mobility and social justice.
