Welcome to Healthy CUNY
The Healthy CUNY Initiative (HCI) is a campaign designed by CUNY students, faculty and staff to make CUNY the healthiest urban university in the United States. HCI seeks to ensure that students leave CUNY healthier and better able to protect their future health than when they entered. Acknowledging the strong connection between educational achievement and health, HCI seeks to reduce the physical, psychological and family-related health barriers that block academic success and graduation.
