What question are you trying to answer

AEC – Bookstore

The Auxiliary Enterprises Corporation (AEC) is a mechanism for providing funding for Hunter College-related projects or activities to students, faculty, staff, and departments. This funding comes largely from the proceeds of service and rental contracts on-campus, including contracts for food and vending services, as well as for the Hunter College Bookstore.

The AEC entered into a new contract with Follett for the bookstore this academic year. The AEC is working together with Follett to create a greater emphasis on used and digital textbook sales, as well as the implementation of a textbook rental program, both of which work to increase revenue for the college and reduce the total cost for students.

In this assessment, the AEC collects sales data from the Hunter College Bookstore concerning the total sales of used books as a percentage, both in dollars and in units, of all book sold.

How effective is the revised initiative on book sales?

Facilities – Work Order System

The Office of Facilities Management and Planning oversees the maintenance and improvement of the physical learning and working environments across all of Hunter College’s campuses.

A work order system within the Archibus database is utilized by the Office of Facilities Management and Planning to collect and manage work requests from the overall community, as well as prioritizes and tracks the work performed by our trades and custodial personnel.

In this assessment, the data collected from the Archibus work order system will be used to determine the effectiveness of the department managing its workload from submission to completion and responsiveness to the community, as well as the applicability of this system to the assessment process.

Does the facilities department respond to work orders in a timely manner?

Hunter Green – Sustainability

Hunter Green is a committee made up student, faculty, and staff, from across all Hunter College campuses who meet monthly to discuss and develop ways in which Hunter College works to constantly become a greener and more environmentally friendly campus.

Hunter Green monitors and develops ways in which it can increase the recycling awareness and the capacity of collection.

This assessment collects data on the amount of recyclables collected and disposed of properly across all campuses.

Is Hunter creating a more sustainable campus?

OneCard – Dining Plan Usage

The OneCard Dining Plan allows students to set aside a specific amount of money on their card to be used exclusively in the dining facilities on campus without paying any sales tax on purchases, resulting in students saving nearly 9% on all purchases made in the on-campus dining facilities.

The Business Office, ICIT and the on-campus dining facilities will better publicize to students, particularly new students, the benefits of the dining plan, in specific, and of the OneCard in general. New, more comprehensive dining plan options are being devised for increased student savings.

This assessment will evaluate usage of the dining plan by students to save on food purchases by gathering data on the amount of dining plan sales as a percent of all OneCard sales at on-campus dining facilities.

To what extend are students using the dining plan in Hunter’s cafeteria?
