John Jay College of Criminal Justice is one of nine baccalaureate-granting colleges within CUNY, the largest urban university in the country. With a Master‟s – Larger Programs Carnegie classification, John Jay currently enrolls approximately 15,000 students, a population that reflects the rich diversity of the College‟s urban location. Given John Jay‟s start in the Police Academy of the City of New York in 1965, the institution has undergone extensive growth and change as it approaches its 50th year. In the early days of serving “in-service” students – police officers, firefighters and corrections officers – John Jay developed a distinction it has carried to today: infusing the justice curriculum with a multidisciplinary, liberal arts focus. As the present-day John Jay completes its latest transition to a CUNY Senior College, it is recommitting to that unique educational mission.
