Welcome to the School of Science, Health, and Technology (SSH and T). Our school enrolls about 40% of the over 6,500 students in the college. We are housed in a $247 million, 195,000 sq. ft. science building with state-of-the-art teaching and research facilities, including two multi-million-dollar core research facilities in the areas of cellular-molecular biology and advanced imaging, and chemical analysis.
Over the years, the school has created a supporting and scholarly environment for our students and faculty through various events and activities, including the Annual Student Research Competition, Minority Health Issues Seminar, Women in Science and Math Seminar, Dean’s Honor List Award, Student Town Hall Meetings, Student mentoring support initiative and Annual faculty-student-staff recognition.
Our faculty has research and student support grants from the NIH-NIGMS, NSF, NASA, Air force, NYC, and PSC-CUNY. STEM students are engaged in these grant research activities, and they have presented their work in conferences and won prizes. We have continued promoting the academic and professional success of our students through a supportive network, which includes tutoring, GRE, MCAT preparation and other enrichment workshops, individualized pre-professional advising, research internships, volunteer experience placements, invited lectures, faculty mentoring, and student club activities.
The School aims to strengthen its research and student mentoring efforts further by hiring additional research-active faculty, providing more in-house research experience to our students, broadening our degree offerings to include additional career-oriented degree programs that have high employment prospects.
As the Dean of our school, I remain committed to the mission of our College, and am truly motivated to create opportunities for our faculty and students and contribute to enhancing the upward social and economic mobility of our students.
