In 2021 the United Nations Academic Impact Program (UNAI) acknowledged LaGuardia Humanitarian Initiative’s contribution to global learning and global awareness by welcoming LaGuardia Community College to join 1,400 institutions from 145 countries in becoming an United Nations Academic Impact Program (UNAI) member.
Being a member means we aim to align work at the college to align with the United Nation in supporting and contributing to realizing UN goals and mandates through our everyday research and education. Membership also includes access to the UNAI Bulletin Board which lists professional development and publishing opportunities, along with multilingual seminars on special topics.
Want to get involved?
As an UNAI member, students, staff, and faculty are eligible for UN scholarships, contests, and publication opportunities, and can take advantage of this membership to network and share research. Part of being a members means the college sends in an Annual Activity Report. The report demonstrates how LaGuardia Community College is addressing the UNAI Principles or the UN Sustainable Development Goals, and provides participants an opportunity to become connected with similar efforts worldwide.
If you have a project you would like to submit please use this form. The deadline for submissions to the 2022 Activity Report is December 10th, 2022.
Thomas Cleary (Library, firstname.lastname@example.org) and Stefania Dinu (ASAP, email@example.com) are the UNAI focal points at LaGuardia. Aside from organizing and writing the Activity Report, they can help with any questions.
UNAI lists 10 goals that support broader UN goals and initiatives:
Each calendar year the college is required to submit an report detailing the activity or activities undertaken by the university that advance the goals and mission of the United Nations, particularly in the area of the Sustainable Development Goals.
