Serving Inwood, Washington Heights and the Bronx communities, CUNY in the Heights, administered by BMCC, brings more educational opportunities to neighborhoods by creating multiple pathways to degrees and careers with family-sustaining wages.
In preparation for the re-opening of CUNY in the Heights (CITH) in Fall 2021, BMCC is engaging with local community leaders (elected officials/government, employers, education, and non-profit community organizations) to learn how CITH can meet their needs. In this effort, BMCC is collaborating with Hostos and Bronx Community College to bring much needed workforce development programing and working with CUNY’s Continuing Education team to leverage workforce and academic opportunities for student development, specifically around Internships and employer engagement.
Renovation to Expand Education Opportunities
CITH’s renovation is part of BMCC’s on-going efforts to bring more educational opportunities to neighborhoods by creating multiple pathways to degrees and careers with family-sustaining wages.

The expanded facility has been designed to adopt the principles of Universal Design in order to meet the accessibility needs of all. The renovated CITH includes: an open student lounge with access to natural light, a quiet study area and three state of the art flexible classrooms that provide access to computer stations at every desk, and much more.
