President's Message

Dear York College Community:

As we continue to resume our normal collegiate activities following the interruption caused by Hurricane Sandy, I want to restate my thank you for the outstanding job members of the college community continue to do in keeping York open as a safe harbor for those who needed us.  Special thanks go to all of the staff of Public Safety, Buildings and Grounds, IT, and our Custodial Team who worked countless hours to keep evacuee guests safe. Please know that the whole college appreciates what you have done and continue to do during our city’s time of crisis.

I also want the college community to know, especially our students, that a number of essential offices ( in addition to instruction) will be open tomorrow - Saturday, November 10. The offices include: Admissions, Testing, Bursar, Financial Aid, Academic Advisement, Health Services and the Registrar’s Office.

Finally, to the students, faculty, and staff who regularly use the Health and Physical Education Complex (HPCE), I thank you for your ongoing patience with being displaced from the facility, which houses Physical Education classes and practice spaces, as York continues to host  a large number of special needs persons. I assure you that we are working with CUNY and with city officials to reopen the HPCE facility at the earliest possible time.

Thanks for your words of encouragement.

Sincerely,

Marcia V. Keizs

Hurricane Recovery Information

Student Life Aid

Dear York Cardinal,

I hope this little note finds you your family and friends safe and well. Hurricane Sandy has challenged us all in many different ways, some more directly than others.

As a York College community, we all are faced with trying to regain our focus, marshal our energies and be ready for the final weeks of the fall semester.

Be encouraged to take advantage of the support and services we offer. Whether it's needing someone to talk to, the Counseling Center staff is here to listen. If it's little help with course work; then the Academic Achievement Center is the place to go. Or if you find you are in need of a little financial assistance to help you through this emergency, perhaps the Petrie Grant can help address your need.

Please know all of us in the Division of Student and the entire York community is here to assist and support you in your efforts to finish this semester successfully.

Don't hesitate to call or come by, we're here to help you succeed!

Sincerely,

Geneva M. Walker-Johnson

Vice President for Student Development

Crisis Response

Dear Colleagues,

I want to let you know about the steps the Counseling Center is taking to assist our students in the wake of Hurricane Sandy.

  1. We have postponed the Graduate Fair until November 19th, so that they can take full advantage of the resources once the campus is a bit more settled.
  2. We have contributed to the Hurricane Sandy resource list on the York Homepage by adding information sent to us from CUNY Central and information that we were able to gather.
    1. http://www.york.cuny.edu/student-development/counseling-center
    2. http://www.cuny.edu/about/administration/offices/sa/GeneralinfoResources.html
  3. We have partnered with VP Walker-Johnson and Dean Gibson to contact several faculty members who have in the past assisted with crisis response on campus to assist us once again if the need is greater than we can meet.
  4. We have created packets for each of your offices that contain handouts with information about coping after a disaster and flyers describing the services we offer. The packets will be delivered on Monday when we are more fully staffed.
  5. We will continue to operate within our normal hours but should the need arise we will explore extending our hours.

I suspect that there will be instances where students will seek you and your staff members out because of the pre-established relationship they have with you. Many of those students may not have a need for formal counseling services but would benefit from the resources on the CUNY Central website (including educational handouts) and the attached food and water distribution list. Please utilize those resources as you see fit. For students who do have a need for counseling please refer them to our office and if they need to be seen immediately please call our office and consider walking them downstairs as many of you have done in the past. We will continue to monitor campus needs and adjust our outreach as the need arises however please do not hesitate to let me know if you learn of needs that we may not have learned of.

Thank you in advance for your support and offers of assistance. Please share this email with your staff members.

Best,

Cicely
