The HEO Forum is an organization of professionals in the Higher Education Officer series at Hunter College whose aim is to enhance the welfare and profession of all HEOs at the College.
Why were we created?
The HEO Forum was formed during the Spring 1995 semester following the declaration of fiscal exigency by CUNY and the non-reappointment of 18 HEOs, based solely on the "financial ability" clause and prior to the establishment of the Hunter College Retrenchment Committee. Its purpose is to represent actively an essential, yet diverse segment of the Hunter College community.
We are NOT a union nor are we affiliated with any organization or chapter.
What do we do?
Many HEOs are involved in the decision and policy-making aspects of their unit, and therefore have a hand in shaping the destiny of the College. Over the last five years HEOs have been appointed to many college-wide committees, such as the searches for senior administrators and directors, review of programs, Middle States Accreditation, the Strategic Plan, Campus Climate, and honorary degrees. HEO representatives sit on the Faculty Personnel and Budget Committee, the Senate, and the HEO Screening Committee.
The HEO Steering Committee meet with fellow HEOs every semester to discuss matters of concern (i.e. construction, payroll, work orders). We also meet with members of the administration to relay these concerns.
