Support for Students
Below are organizations at Baruch that work directly with students in support of teaching and learning. Following each link is a brief description of the unit’s mission and how we aim to accomplish it. If you don’t find what you are looking for, please don’t hesitate to ask via email to Dennis.Slavin@baruch.cuny.edu or to the colleagues whose contact information you find on the individual sites.
The Bernard L. Schwartz Communication Institute (BLSCI) cultivates learning environments in which students become strategic, thoughtful communicators and creators. It is not a drop-in center for individual students, instead, the Institute works with students in particular communication-intensive courses. Many students attend one of these courses during their time at Baruch. The Institute’s team looks forward to supporting their communication skills development.
The Honors Program advocates for learning across Baruch College by supporting students through honors advisement, fellowships, and cross-college collaboration. These programs include:
The Student Academic Consulting Center’s mission is to help the undergraduates of Baruch College succeed academically and in their chosen professions by helping them throughout their college years to develop the skills and knowledge necessary for future success.
The Tools for Clear Speech (TfCS) program improves the pronunciation, fluency, and pragmatic abilities of English language learners (ELLs) and non-native English speakers at Baruch College. Our participants achieve more effective and intelligible communication, developing skills that empower them to succeed in their classrooms, careers, and beyond.
The Writing Center offers free support to all Baruch students. Our professional consultants—teachers of college writing and writers themselves—work collaboratively with students to deepen their writing and English language skills. This center helps students become more independent, confident, and versatile writers at any step of the process.
