Welcome to the History Department

We are hoping to see you on campus this semester, but please be sure you are ready!

  • If you are fully vaccinated, upload your vaccination information to CUNYFirst, and then download the Everbridge VaxPass. (HERE is more information.)
  • If you are not yet fully vaccinated, you only have until September 27th to do so. In the meantime, you will need to obtain weekly testing through a CUNY testing site, which needs at least 24 hours to be processed. (HERE is more information.)
  • Both processes take time, so get started now. And give yourself extra time to get inside the building and to your classes, since everyone will be navigating a new system.
  • Meantime, we are looking forward to seeing your masked selves!

HUNTER IS HERE FOR YOU

We want to reiterate that there are many resources available to support our community during this difficult and uncertain time.

For our students, we want to remind you that we have developed a Coronavirus Emergency Assistance Fund through the support of our loyal donors and alums; if you have lost wages, have unexpected medical costs, or have any other financial needs related to the coronavirus crisis, please contact Vice President and Dean of Students Eija Ayravainen for more information.

We have begun concerted fundraising efforts to provide students in need with technology , including laptops that students can take out on a long-term loan, to ensure all have access to remote learning. We have already been able to purchase new laptops for students to borrow, and we are committed to continuing these efforts. To learn more or request a technology loan, contact Director of Student Life Miesha Smith. Additionally, both our 68th Street campus and Brookdale campus food pantries remain open, and we are committed to keeping them stocked. The Counseling Center is open and here for you, both virtually and with some limited in-person and virtually sessions, to help you navigate this difficult time.
