To all Faculty & Staff The CCNY facilities team makes every effort to moderate the heating and cooling throughout the year across 18 buildings and thousands of rooms. An extensive cutover process occurs twice a year (Fall and Spring). The shoulder months of September/October and April/May are always an extra challenge as temperatures may have significant swings. The team looks at the weather forecast and identifies a window that causes the least amount of disruption. This season, the college electricians are plagued by numerous electrical outages created by unsafe electrical… Read More »

Dear CCNY Community, This is just a reminder that while COVID is no longer considered a pandemic, it is still very much active and can still have serious ramifications for your health and well-being.

If you are a student, please let your professors know and see if they will work with you to provide you with any missed assignments and/or lecture materials. For those of you who have been exposed to COVID through close… Read More »

Dear Faculty and Staff, This is a reminder that we are still taking precautions when it comes to minimizing the spread of COVID-19.  One of the ways that we can accomplish this is through hybrid meetings, as called for in our COVID Safety Plan.  Please hold all of your meetings using remote meeting technology so that those who are concerned about being in a crowded space or that are working remotely due to their schedule or accommodation can attend.  Please keep in mind that some meetings, such as Faculty Senate, fall under the Open Meetings Act and attendance in person is vital… Read More »

Dear Faculty and Staff, CUNY-Wide Enforcement of Information Security Policies and Procedures Background Recent incidents at a couple of our sister campuses resulted in Ransomware attacks and the possibility that CUNY would have to pay the ransom in order to have access to our information fully restored.  Here at City College, we are in the process of mitigating our risks so that we can better protect our environment and the digital assets that we are responsible for. Information Security practices at the campus level have been more relaxed than policy requires and that… Read More »

Dear CCNY Community, Each semester we receive guidance from CUNY on changes to the COVID-19 Safety Plan.  For Spring '23, there is only one area of change to our plan.  Starting February 1st, 2023, visitors to CUNY campuses, including CCNY, are no longer required to show proof of vaccination, register with Cleared4 or show a negative COVID-19 test result.  Visitors may enter our campus by showing an official Identification Card and signing in with the security guard at the entrances to our buildings.  Our plan on the website has been updated to reflect this change and can be… Read More »

Dear CCNY Faculty and Staff, CUNY has made the decision to move all email from the local campuses to the Cloud-based system, Microsoft 365 (M365). In this migration, the important thing to note is that your email address will not change.  It will still be in the @ccny.cuny.edu domain.  This migration is supposed to take place at the end of this semester, so as to cause less disruption.  This is just the first of several emails to come as we prepare our campus for this migration.  I am writing to you now because CUNY just released a training schedule that has several classes on… Read More »
