BARUCH COMMUNITY CITIZENSHIP

PARTICIPATE: Student Clubs & Organizations
Membership in a student club offers a place to meet new people as well as an opportunity to become an Active Citizen and develop important communications, organizational, and leadership skills. Students have over 170 student clubs and organizations to choose from that are already established at Baruch or may form their own. Each club has open membership. The clubs provide a range of activities from academic services to social events. Concerts, discussion groups, and lectures are among the extracurricular activities that Baruch offers. A list of clubs and organizations can be found by clicking on Student Clubs & Organizations.

PARTICIPATE: T.E.A.M. Baruch
Together Everyone Achieves More (T.E.A.M.) Baruch is a student leadership development program that affords students the opportunity to unearth and develop their leadership potential. As a member of T.E.A.M. Baruch, you will be a part of a network of students who strive to make Baruch a better place by providing essential and ongoing support to your fellow students through a variety of dynamic peer leadership initiatives, which include: Freshman Seminar Peer Mentoring, Orientation Leader, P.A.W.S. (Peers Advocating Wellness Services), Peers for Careers, and Peer Academic Advising. As a peer leader you will gain valuable leadership experience and interpersonal skills that will compliment your abilities to relate well to others, foster meaningful connections with your fellow peers, and enhance the overall college experience for Baruch students.

PARTICIPATE: Student Governance
Participation in student government through democratic elections is a concrete way to share in the policy setting and governance of the College.

UNDERGRADUATE STUDENT GOVERNMENT - USG is the official representative organization of both the day and evening undergraduate students. USG is responsible for voicing student concerns, protecting students’ rights, involving students in policies that affect them, gaining student influence in decisions made at Baruch, and making students aware of local and national issues that might affect them.

GRADUATE STUDENT ASSEMBLY - The GSA at Baruch College exists to enrich the experience of the graduate student, all of whom are members of GSA. Graduate students at Baruch have a mature sense of responsibility and understand that they hold a unique place of privilege in the academic community with rights and responsibilities that are distinctively different from those of undergraduate students. With GSA, graduate students can discuss and advise on changes to Graduate School policy proposed by the administration, identify and discuss concerns of graduate students, explore possible solutions and bring them to the attention of the Deans and administrators.

PARTICIPATE: Alumni Relations Initiatives
The College strives to nurture its relationship with all its constituents—current students, future students, and graduates alike. Its alumni relations program promotes fellowship and offers activities that encourage alumni to return, rediscover, and recommit to their alma mater.

BARUCH COLLEGE ALUMNI RELATIONS PROGRAM - We know that you will be a student at Baruch for only a short time, but you will be an alumnus of the College your entire life! The mission of the Baruch College Alumni Relations Program is to foster and maintain a cordial and mutually beneficial relationship between the College and its graduates, students, faculty, and staff. The Alumni Relations Program offers an array of educational, cultural, social, and career enhancement opportunities to its more than 100,000 members. Publications and the Website keep alumni in touch with the College and each other. To learn how you can get involved in the Alumni Relations Program, even before you graduate, contact the Baruch College Office of Alumni Relations at www.baruch.cuny.edu/alumni.

BARUCH COLLEGE FUND (BCF) - You are never too young to begin giving back. The Baruch College Fund’s mission is to generate, encourage, and promote the educational welfare of the students of the College through financial support. Annually the BCF, through both institutional and individual donations, provides critical financial support to the College for such things as scholarships, student services and technology. The Fund is governed by an independent board of trustees whose members are highly distinguished alumni and civic leaders. To learn how you can give back, call the Office of College Advancement for more information, or visit www.baruch.cuny.edu/bcf.

PARTICIPATE: Government and Community Relations Initiatives
Partner with Baruch’s Office of Government and Community Relations in expanding the College’s city, state, federal, and community relationships at key legislative conferences, public hearings, press conferences, legislative budget meetings, and networking events.  Your involvement will be a win/win situation for you, Baruch College, and the City University of New York.

Some activities for which you could serve as a student ambassador include:

  • The Assembly’s Black, Puerto Rican/Hispanic, and Asian Caucus Weekend;
  • CUNY’s Advocacy Day in Albany, NY;
  • The Puerto Rican/Hispanic Legislative “Somos El Futuro” Conference in Albany, NY;
  • The New York City Council’s Black, Latino, and Asian Caucus Weekend; and
  • CUNY’s Vallone Scholarship Public Hearing and Press.

The knowledge, skills, and abilities you will gain will strengthen your capacity to compete in the marketplace. Through personal experience, you will understand the intricate relationship between government, media, and the corporate sector.  At the same time, you will be an active participant in helping ensure that our public higher education system receives the necessary resources for our students' success.  For more information, contact Eric Lugo, Director of Government and Community Relations at Eric_Lugo@baruch.cuny.edu.
