Welcome to the Faculty Delegate Assembly!

 

Welcome to the Faculty Delegate Assembly's website. We are keenly interested in your suggestions and updates to this new effort to provide a portal to Hunter College faculty resources. We are especially interested in your ideas for additional resources we can list or link to under the Faculty Matters tab.  Please send your suggestions to fda@hunter.cuny.edu

We are in the process of updating the FDA webpage! We hope to hire support staff in the fall semester (2023) to keep up with office work, to reopen the faculty lounge on the 8th floor of the West building for serving coffee, tea and cookies as the FDA did before the pandemic hit. As you have noticed, construction on the terrace of the 8th floor is still ongoing, but the end is near. We were told that the renovation project will be completed by November. Keep your fingers crossed! However, the lounge is still available to faculty and staff for small events. Please note that a faculty or staff member MUST be present for the entire time of a booked event. Please send an email to the FDA, if you like to reserve the lounge. To insure broad availability and enjoyment, the lounge cannot be used as regular classroom space or on a semester or long-term basis.

YOUR CONTINUED HELP IN DONATIONS IS WHAT MAKES THE LOUNGE THRIVE-- PLEASE EMAIL US WITH ANY INQUIRES REGARDING DUES AND DONATIONS!
