Crossing Bridges — CUNY's Shadowing Program

Learn about CUNY’s shadowing program, Crossing Bridges, which provides the option for masters and doctoral students to experience firsthand employment possibilities outside the classroom. Students are offered a semester or more to shadow senior administrators to understand what career opportunities exist within higher education administration. The offices of Human Resources and Campus Operations are responsible for all operational logistics of the program. A mission of the program is to enhance relationships between administrators and scholars in the hope of building bridges that harness knowledge, experience and growth, and creating a pool of resources for their professional journey.
