The Center for Developmental Neuroscience and Developmental Disabilities is a CUNY Center that conducts, promotes, and sponsors research, education, and training in the developmental neurosciences, with special emphasis on research and educational programs in the specific field of developmental disabilities. The Center provides for collaborative efforts between the College and other research institutions in offering the Master of Science in Neuroscience and Developmental Disabilities, as well as with the University’s doctoral programs in Biology (sub-program in Neuroscience) and Psychology (sub-program in Learning Processes). The Center also provides advanced research training for graduate students.

The Center for Environmental Science provides support for research and policy recommendations concerning environmental problems. One of the major purposes of the Center is to define and solve environmental problems on Staten Island and its environs through research that includes studies of respiratory diseases, toxic and carcinogenic chemicals in the air, and the population at risk for lung cancer.

The Center for the Study of Staten Island: Staten Island Project (SIP) is designed to integrate the work of the College with the public affairs concerns of the people of Staten Island. To that end, it mediates and facilitates the collaboration of the College’s faculty, students, and staff with government, civic organizations, and businesses in order to identify and assist in finding solutions to the borough’s pressing public issues. The Center serves as an information and consultation resource to prepare citizens and leaders to make better-informed decisions about public life; fosters the development of faculty research and graduate education through engagement with the community; and builds bridges to other public affairs institutes and local communities spurring innovation in public life on Staten Island.

The CUNY High-Performance Computing Center (HPCC) strives to support the scientific computing needs of University faculty, students, staff, and their public and private sector partners; create opportunities for the CUNY research community to develop new partnerships with the government and private sectors; and leverage the HPCC’s capabilities to acquire additional research resources for its faculty and graduate students in existing and major new programs.

The College of Staten Island is located in New York City in the borough of Staten Island. Completed in 1994, the 204-acre campus of the College of Staten Island is the largest continuous college campus in New York City.
