CUNY EDGE

What is CUNY EDGE?

CUNY EDGE envisions a world in which all people have access to the educational opportunities and support they need to realize academic success, a sustainable career, and a brighter future. We commit to contributing to this vision.

CUNY EDGE’s mission is to help CUNY students achieve academic excellence, graduate on time, and find employment.

CUNY EDGE, formally known as the COPE program, has expanded its student services to provide new benefits and support for you! CUNY EDGE offers you:

  • Advisement on your classes and career
  • Seminars on ways to succeed in college and work
  • Cafeteria or bookstore vouchers for students who participate in the program
  • Connection to internship and job resources
  • Tutoring in various subjects

Additionally, CUNY EDGE has its own computer lab in T4-264 and houses the college’s food pantry in T4-216 (Food for Thought).

CUNY EDGE creates a sense of community by holding on-campus events such as an annual toy drive to benefit the children of participants, a Thanksgiving celebration in November, and a holiday party in December, where Santa himself distributes the toys. Furthermore, CUNY EDGE extends its closet (CUNY EDGE Closet) to KBCC students and holds an ongoing community service project where new or gently worn business attire is accepted to help those in need of interview clothing.
In June, CUNY EDGE recognizes participants who achieve academic success at the college’s Award Ceremony with special CUNY EDGE Awards for Academic Excellence and holds its own graduation celebration. For more information, please contact the CUNY EDGE Office (T4-216 ext. 4660).
