Random COVID-19 Testing
To help contain the spread of COVID-19 in our community, CUNY’s randomized testing program includes a periodic screening of a sampling of vaccinated individuals across all CUNY campuses. This means that every member of our CUNY community (including students, faculty, and staff) will be randomly selected to test for COVID-19 in the coming months, regardless of vaccination status. Note that all members of the CUNY community must comply with this mandate. Failure to do so will result in denied access to all CUNY facilities, including the Queensborough campus. Learn more.

I wish you a successful spring semester. Please feel free to reach out to me directly, if you have any questions.

#GoTigers!
Sincerely,
 
Dr. Brian R. Mitra
Vice President for Student Affairs & Enrollment Management

The Division of Student Affairs supports the mission of the College to prepare students for transfer to four-year institutions and for entry into the job market by providing a network of quality student support programs and services that are culturally relevant and developmentally appropriate for our diverse, urban student body. The Division is committed to the goals of human development, a lifelong process that encompasses mastery of knowledge, cultural awareness, clarification of values, self-awareness, and refinement.

The Division is committed to student access to higher education both physical and programmatic, and to student success as measured by persistence, goal attainment, academic standing, and personal development.

The Division is concerned with all aspects of student life on campus. Its members participate in a number of services and programs designed to help students achieve academic and personal success. In addition, the Division fosters community involvement and encourages students to be aware of the value of their individual contributions to society.

The Division seeks to foster the growth of a positive sense of identity in all members of the College community and to create a campus climate that contributes to a pluralistic learning experience, celebrates diversity, combats bigotry, and promotes harmony among all people.
