January 2023 – In 2023, the Colin Powell School for Civic and Global Leadership at The City College of New York will launch the Daniel Patrick Moynihan Center with the purpose of supporting new leaders to make a difference in public affairs. Through two signature fellowship programs and a rich slate of public events, the Moynihan Center will ensure that the next generation of public scholars and public servants reflects the diversity of viewpoints and lived experiences represented at The City College.

The Moynihan Center takes inspiration from the late Senator for New York’s celebrated career, which began when he attended CCNY as an undergraduate in 1943, before joining the US Navy, earning a doctorate in history, serving in four White House administrations (two for each party), and ultimately becoming New York’s longest serving Senator.
