Student Affairs is a division that students will increasingly identify as having empowered them in their journeys to personal and professional success through the cultivation of each of their unique potentials.
The Division of Student Affairs subscribes to the notion that an involved student is a successful student and thus supports students’ development by providing engaging and transformative learning experiences, and opportunities for them, their families and alumni to participate in the campus community.
Guided by The Division of Student Affairs’ principle that an engaged student is a successful student, we have adopted the following overarching goals to improve student retention and expand access to services that enhance Student Learning, Well-being and Professional Development.
We implement integrated and comprehensive strategies that help students to develop self-advocacy, leadership, and professional skills.
We coach; We help; We provide support services that assist students in achieving their goals.
We will promote the continuous improvement of the college experience by helping students to connect, collaborate and commit to engage in professional activities, community service and campus life.
We care about the challenges that our students may face while striving to achieve their academic goals. Please click in the links to see some of the College's resources that are available to students.

The informational sessions will be conducted during the Fall and Spring semesters.
Undergraduate Student Government
To those who do not know us, we are the Undergraduate Student Government (USG) here at the City College of New York. We have represented the undergraduate students since 1867, making us the oldest USG. Our mission is to serve as representatives on behalf of the students to the faculty and administration of the college, and to the persons or groups outside of the college whenever such representation is called for. We are also here to promote the development and organization of the City College community, financially supporting student organizations, representing student interest, and advocating for student rights.
The Graduate Student Council is the governing body of the graduate students at the City College. We represent the interests of all graduate students and function as a liaison between the graduate student body and the College's administration. The GSC is composed of two main bodies: the Executive Board and the General Membership. The Executive Board is comprised of seven elected members and the General Membership is made up of appointed members from the various departments at the College
