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.
Academia is changing rapidly, both in the U.S. 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 Baruch's staff.
Starting in fall 2013, staff members have been able to participate in a wider array of training opportunities (subject to supervisory approval). In spring 2013, professional development has focused on three broad areas: Service Excellence, Managing Change, and Data Analysis. Service Excellence training is required for all Baruch staff; members of the CSS will designate staff for participation in the other two training programs.
