Baruch's PSC Chapter Chair (Vincent Digirolamo) and Grievance Counselor (Peter Pepper: 917-838-5072) are available to help clarify contractual rights, obligations, and procedures, as are members of the Human Resources staff ( 646 660-6590 ), the academic deans, and department chairs.

The college's Personnel Procedures Manual is another valuable resource. Each academic department has two copies of the Manual. One section includes the official forms used by the college for a wide variety of personnel procedures. These may be photocopied. Eventually, the forms will be available on line.
