Sixteen Ukrainian and Russian students impacted by the war find an educational home at CUNY

Hunter College announced at the start of the Fall 2022 semester that 16 students from Ukraine and Russia whose education was interrupted as a result of the war will have a chance to continue their degrees at Hunter College.

“Some students living in Ukraine had to stop going to college because it was too dangerous to continue, while some students from Russia were forced to flee because of something a family member said or did. They are now headed to Hunter, where they can safely get back to hitting the books.”

Yakov Klots, Assistant Professor of Russian Language and Literature at Hunter College/Graduate Center, CUNY, was instrumental in making sure the necessary administrative procedures were put in place and the students could navigate the application process and settle into their new lives.
