College Senior Staff
The College Senior Staff (CSS) is a group of senior managers at the College meeting in concert with Cabinet to ensure that Cabinet deliberations are informed by the experience and expertise of personnel in Baruch’s major academic and administrative units and to translate decisions made in Cabinet into practice. CSS receives reports from the College’s Cross-Border Teams and makes recommendations to Cabinet about how to incorporate their work. Collectively and severally, the members of the CSS also identify training opportunities and approve the selection of staff for those opportunities.

All-Hands Staff Meeting
On January 18, 2013, President Wallerstein convened in Mason Hall an unprecedented meeting with all of Baruch College’s staff. In his opening speech, the President celebrated staff contributions to the College’s achievements over the past twenty years, outlined the Baruch College Strategic Plan 2013-2018, and gave staff their overall charge with respect to the plan. His speech was followed by a short film interviewing ten members of the staff on their work at Baruch. The meeting concluded with a presentation from Dean David Birdsell about the components of the Strategic Plan focused on administrative effectiveness.
The All-Hands Meeting launched the new Strategic Plan, and along with it, a renewed appreciation for the importance of celebrating contributions from everyone in our community as we work toward the next set of ambitious goals for the College.

Academia is changing rapidly, both in the US and globally. New competitive pressures, shifts in student demographics, the proliferation of instructional modalities, ever more demanding expectations for measurement and assessment, applicants’ expectations and the globalization of the academic marketplace itself make ongoing professional development essential for all members of the staff. In spring 2013, professional development will focus on three broad areas: Service Excellence, Managing Change, and Data Analysis. Service Excellence training will be required for all Baruch staff; members of the CSS will designate staff for participation in the other two training programs.
Starting in fall 2013, members of the staff will be able to participate in a wider array of training opportunities subject to supervisory approval.
Descriptions of these programs together with training schedules will be posted to this location by mid-February.
