Hunter College is an American public university and one of the constituent organizations of the City University of New York, located in the Lenox Hill neighborhood of Manhattan's Upper East Side.[2] The college grants undergraduate and graduate degrees in over one-hundred fields of study in five schools: The School of Arts and Sciences, The School of Education, The School of Social Work, The Hunter-Bellevue School of Nursing, and the CUNY School of Public Health at Hunter College.[2] Hunter College also administers Hunter College High School and Hunter College Elementary School.[3]

Founded in 1870, originally as a women's college, Hunter is one of the oldest public colleges in the United States.[3] The college assumed the location of its main campus on Park Avenue in 1873. Hunter began admitting men into its freshman class in 1964.[4] In 1943 Eleanor Roosevelt dedicated the former home of herself and Franklin Delano Roosevelt to the college, which reopened in 2010 as the Roosevelt House Public Policy Institute at Hunter College.
