This monograph analyzes the effects of recent trends in immigration from foreign countries and migration from Puerto Rico on the makeup of the City University of New York (CUNY) student body and provides preliminary assessments of related educational needs. An introduction describes the research for the study which included census data, other federal and city government statistics, surveys of CUNY administrators, and roundtable discussions with faculty, students, and community leaders. Part 1, which includes three sub-sections, examines the recent changes in the profile of CUNY students, discusses the likely changes that will take place during the current decade, and assesses the ways in which current foreign-born and Puerto Rican-born first-time freshmen students differ from current native-born freshmen. Part 2 considers how increases in the number of immigrant and migrant students will affect academic programs and support-service needs. Part 3 profiles the main country of origin of 10 groups at CUNY and describes how these groups are distributed across the city. Part 3 also includes information on the historical background of immigrant trends. Appendixes contain data, lists of panel participants, other research findings on immigrant communities, and a list of countries and territories where CUNY students have studied at the secondary level.
