Division of Student Affairs
The Division of Student Affairs is comprised of a group of seasoned professionals and students who strive to provide the City College community with a tremendously rewarding college experience. "Students First!" is the philosophy that shaped the development of our new administrative structure which features three clusters:
Student Support Resources, headed by Teresa Walker, provides immediate, useful and accessible support for students in crisis and sponsors programs and events that support healthy living. This cluster includes the Counseling Center, the Accessability Center (Disability Services), Housing and Emergency Loans and Grants.
Professional Student Development, headed by Dean Wendy Thornton, expands the function of career services to include the professional development of the whole student. This cluster includes the Professional Development Institute, the Office of International Students and Scholar Services, and the Office of Student Conduct and Judicial Affairs.
Student Campus Involvement, headed by Cicely Bland, coordinates and offers programs that strengthen engagement among students, their families, alumni, faculty and staff. Student Campus Involvement encompasses the Office of Student Life and Leadership Development, Athletics, Recreation and Campus Fitness, the Auxiliary Enterprises Corporation and the Office of Veterans Affairs. The Graduate Student Council and the Undergraduate Student Government are important partners to the Campus Involvement Cluster.
Complementing the work of the Division's three clusters is the Child Development Center. It provides daily childcare and educational services to children and families of City College students. Ms. LaTrella Thornton is our director. In addition, the Division has established a Student Affairs Office at the Center for Worker Education (CWE), located in downtown Manhattan. Dr. Sophia Demetriou is the Executive Director of the CWE Student Affairs office.
