About Our Site

Baruch College’s Office of Communications, Marketing and Public Affairs; the Office of Student Life; the Baruch Computing and Technology Center along with individuals from each school worked together to relaunch the homepage in February 2011, with top-level pages being revamped on a rolling basis thereafter. The mission of this redesign was to update the look and feel of the website for its various audiences, implementing modern methods of information delivery including a wider, rotating image slider and streamlined navigation.

Requesting Features on the Homepage of the Baruch College Web Site

Baruch’s Web Site is one of the most widely used access points for information about the College. Part of the homepage content is intended to be dynamic and highlight Baruch’s news and current events. Departments should contact Baruch’s Office of Communications and Marketing at 646-660-6105 or communications@baruch.cuny.edu to request placing a feature about their news or current events, including recruiting and enrollment information, on the Baruch College homepage.  Homepage features will be determined by the College’s chief communications officer.
