1Capital projects are long-term investments requiring relatively large sums of funding to improve or maintain a capital asset, such as a building. The funding typically comes from government entities, including the New York State Bonded projects, the New York City Council, and the Borough President’s office, and is specifically designated for such projects. There are strict guidelines in place for using these funds, which means capital funding cannot be applied to other opportunities, such as student support. It’s also important to note that while the Graduate Center identifies capital projects and secures the funding, once a project is funded we work in collaboration with CUNY’s Facility Planning, Construction and Management Office, which manages the execution of such projects, and subsequent agencies as needed.
