- By Paul McCloskey
The City University of New York (CUNY) has purchased a software suite to help automate its help desk services. The school, the country's largest urban public university, with 23 institutions, picked the RightAnswers site to drive self-service initiatives across all its service desks.

The software will eventually support calls coming from a total campus system population of 226,000 degree-credit students; 230,000 adult, continuing and professional education students; and 35,000 full-time staff and faculty members.
