Campaign Web Site Launched

April 28, 2009 marked the public launch of the most ambitious campaign in Baruch College history: Baruch Means Business - Reaching New Heights of Excellence. We are pleased to reveal the official Baruch Means Business campaign website: www.baruch.cuny.edu/campaign.

The campaign is well under way, and we are extremely grateful to the generous donors and supporters of Baruch College who have already contributed. (Please visit our Honor Roll.) To date, alumni and friends have helped us raise more than $96 million toward our $150 million goal.

You might like to listen in as some of our alumni and friends speak about Baruch, and explain how the College has shaped—and continues to mold—their lives. Hear what they have to say...

Numbers Add Up for Baruch Team

The second time proved to be the charm for the Baruch College chapter of the National Association of Black Accountants (NABA). After failing to earn a place in last year’s KPMG National Student Case Study Competition, the team clinched the number one spot this year, besting NABA teams from nine other colleges and universities nationwide. For its effort, Baruch’s NABA team earned an automatic berth in next years’ competition, and each team member received $500 in prize money. Full Article

Workshops and Seminars

Tuesday, July 21, 6:30pm | Council of Urban Professionals

Conversation with the Leading Candidates for NYC Comptroller

The leading candidates for the office of New York City Comptroller will discuss and debate their plans to create new opportunities for minority and women-owned businesses, particularly those in the financial services industry. Former New York State Comptroller Carl McCall will moderate the forum, which is sponsored by the Council of Urban Professionals, (CUP), a nonprofit, nonpartisan organization representing the social, political and economic agenda of urban professionals.

The participating candidates are New York City Council members Melinda Katz (D-Queens), John Liu (D-Queens), David Weprin (D-Queens) and David Yassky (D-Brooklyn) and businessman Joe Mendola (R). The forum will allow candidates to examine and debate their respective agendas for the Office’s asset allocation policies and for increasing opportunities for historically underrepresented asset fund managers.

The event will be held at the Newman Vertical Campus in room 3-150. To RSVP, please contact Natalie.Velasquez@baruch.cuny.edu.

All faculty and staff with supervisory responsibilities are required to attend this mandatory training on how to respond appropriately to domestic violence concerns.

July sessions are as follows:
