Career Develioment Services

The mission of the office of Career Development Services is to provide all Hunter students and alumni access to the services and best available resources that will assist them in discovering the career that will provide optimum personal satisfaction.

Through an interactive process in individual and group counseling sessions, career counselors assist students in the exploration and evaluation of education, training, work history, interests, skills, and personal traits. Counselors help students recognize underlying factors that may impede progress toward decision-making. The office works collaboratively with faculty to integrate classroom learning with experiential learning through internships and jobs.

Use multi medium communications to promote system, ORION. All current students are imported into system by second week of each semester. "Welcome" letter sent to students by second week of each semester. CDS presentations at all Freshmen orientations day 2. Publicity blurbs on Hunter/Gatherer, flyers/posters distributed/displayed around campus, ORION "Kick Off" celebrations 3rd floor.

Is the ORION system providing better service to students?

System usage increased nearly 100% from 2009-10 to 2010-11.

Data collection will repeat next year for comparison to past years.

Public Safety – Campus Access Control

Public Safety’s mission is to consistently work to create a healthy, safe, and secure campus environment for all students, faculty, staff, and visitors.

Public Safety, along with the College and CUNY, assisted in the installation of campus access control devices at all entrances to Hunter’s 68th Street buildings.

Public Safety compared the number of thefts on the 68th Street campus before and after the access control devices were installed.

Has restricting campus access lowered crime rates?

Grand larceny has dropped significantly, from 26 incidences in 2009 to only 6 in 2011.  Petit larceny has been nearly halved, from 20 incidences in 2009 to 13 in 2011.

Data collection will continue, with the expectation that the downward trend will continue.

Athletics

The Hunter College Athletic Program provides a comprehensive, competitive, and fulfilling program in which all can feel pride, commitment, and affiliation.  We attract, retain, and graduate the finest student-athletes who in turn become loyal, supportive and proud alumni.

The program represents an exemplary model of intercollegiate athletics which athletic excellence is sought within the context of full support for the institutions’ academic mission. 

Athletics administers a student satisfaction survey at the end of the Fall and Spring semesters each year.

Are students satisfied with the athletics program at Hunter?

We learned the athletic program, in the overall satisfaction rating, improved from 67% to 70%, from 2009-10 to 2010-11. There was a significant jump in the rating of assistant coaches from 78% to 84%.  In the head coaching aspect, specifically, an area of improvement would be in the recruiting/retention.   We gave short/long term goals for team recruitment and retention, which we monitor throughout the year with NCAA CAi software and assess with the survey next year.

We will take suggestions of making the survey more focused by removing “neutral” answer on the survey, and will investigate including (adding) coaches’ evaluations, as well.  Not sure this is the right direction; we will discuss and move forward, if we feel it would be beneficial.

AccessABILITY

The Office of AccessABILITY enhances the educational experience for people with temporary or permanent disabilities.

In collaboration with ICIT, the Office of Accessibility performs a review of its students’ Academic Risk Report, and uses this to determine program results annually.

The Access & Technology Center evaluated the number of students who had improved grades as a result of the services provided at the center.  The transcripts of those students on academic risk or probation were reviewed. Based on the data gathered from Access and Technology center’s records a list of students that utilized accommodations during 2010-2011 and belonged to those categories was created.

 

Does the office of AccessABILITY aid at-risk students?

Out of 127 students who were on academic risk, 77 (67%) requested testing accommodations for exams.

89(76%) used the technology services such as assistive technology and computer usage.

71(56%) utilized the Access Center Services such as workshops, counseling, tutoring and studying.

Overall, 42% of students on academic risk were able to show improvements in their grades and overall GPA while using facilities and programs at the center.

 

Results do not yet include Spring and Summer 2011.  This will be evaluated and updated accordingly once documentation is available from ICIT. 

Data collected will be used in future comparison.
