As of 2014, all newly submitted Graduate Center dissertations, theses, and capstone projects appear in Academic Works shortly after graduation. Some works are immediately available to read and download, and some become available after an embargo period set by the author.

The Graduate Center Library is also in the process of digitizing and uploading all pre-2014 dissertations and capstone projects. These works are initially accessible only to the CUNY community, but alumni are invited to make theirs available to the broader public. (Are you a Graduate Center alum?
