The Office of Human Resources would like to provide you with important information in accordance with the Higher Education Opportunity Act of 2008. Please refer to the information below as it relates to the City University of New York.
CUNY recently created a consumer information webpage: http://www.cuny.edu/about/resources/student/consumer-info.html. While much of the site is geared toward students, it contains information that you as a CUNY employee may find useful. For example, it contains links to campus reports on security and safety, including statistics of crimes that occurred on campus property; campus sexual assault prevention programs; a list of persons you can contact should you witness or be a victim of a crime; information about fire safety and prevention systems in certain student housing facilities and other emergency procedures. (To obtain a copy of this report, you may contact Public Safety at 212-650-6911).
B. Drugs and Alcohol
All faculty and staff should be familiar with CUNY's policy on drugs and alcohol http://www.cuny.edu/about/administration/offices/ohrm/cohr/drug-alcohol2011.pdf. In addition, forinformation about the effects of drugs and alcohol use as well as the legal sanctions associated with it, please see the attached document "Information for the CUNY Community on the Risks and Consequences of Drug and Alcohol Use." This document also lists resources for rehabilitation and treatment on and off-campus.
All employees with responsibility for FFELP or private education loans must be familiar with CUNY's Code of Conduct for Educational Loans, which prohibits employees with responsibility for such loans from engaging in conduct that would amount to a conflict of interest.
If you have any questions, please contact Human Resources at (212) 650 7226.
