The Baruch College Faculty Handbook
Last updated on 11/20/2002
In order to accomplish its mission, Baruch College
will pursue the following strategic directions:
1. Educational excellence.
We seek to provide an exceptional educational experience for each
of our students.
· We will recruit a distinguished faculty, and create an
environment in which effective teaching, scholarly research, and
service can thrive; faculty will promote the values and attitudes
that enable excellence to flourish throughout the College.
· We will foster an educational experience that attracts
high quality students, and we will continue to raise admission standards
for students at all levels, while still being responsive to Baruch’s
traditional cohort of diverse, highly motivated students.
· For the educational excellence we intend to develop in
the Zicklin School of Business, the Weissman School of Arts and
Sciences, and the School of Public Affairs, we seek appropriate
recognition and national rankings.
2. Student, faculty, and staff engagement.
We will pursue innovative practices that promote student, faculty
and staff engagement in the College’s curriculum and co-curriculum
so as to maximize student learning, broaden student opportunities,
prepare students for learning throughout their lives, and advance
the College’s services for students.
3. Career development services.
We will provide comprehensive career development services to all
Baruch students in order to enable them to compete more effectively
for professional opportunities.
4. Increase in resources, visibility, and assessment.
To achieve our mission and the educational excellence indicated
here, the College needs to increase available resources, external
visibility, and assessment activities.
a. Sufficient Resources.
The achievement of excellence requires us to increase all available
resources from governmental sponsors, the City University, philanthropic
institutions, alumni and other individual donors, internal efficiencies,
and continuing education and other entrepreneurial programs, while
being affordable for our students.
b. Visibility in New York.
While part of the multi-campus City University system, we will better
communicate this College’s mission and accomplishments, actively
engage our alumni, participate in civic improvement, and be recognized
as a mainstay of the region’s economic life.
c. Assessment Activities.
Baruch intends to learn and improve based on the better use of performance
evaluations and surveys of instructional effectiveness, knowledge
and skill outcomes, employer satisfaction and alumni achievement,
and student appraisals of campus life.
