The City University of New York (CUNY) has played a central role in educating minority and immigrant New Yorkers, and Hispanics comprise the largest minority and immigrant populations in the City. To examine the extent to which CUNY provides Hispanic native-born and immigrant students with access and the opportunity for achievement, a study was conducted using 1990 and 2000 student demographic, enrollment, credit accumulation, and outcome data. Relative to their proportions in the city, Hispanics at CUNY are over-represented by native-born students and under-represented by immigrants. Hispanic attainment at CUNY is less than that of other populations, with the contrast between Hispanic and other immigrants greatest.
