Student Services at GCNYC

GCNYC is deeply committed to student well-being and campus security. Accordingly, we offer access to a wide range of student services, including counseling and career development services for our Master of Science degree students as part of our Common Good mission. More information on each of the student service areas can be found in the GCNYC Catalog.

Campus Safety and Security (Including Campus IDs

The safety and well-being of our students, faculty and staff is of utmost importance. Our security-related student services include campus IDs, resources and designated GCNYC staff. 

If you require a Student, Faculty or Staff ID please contact Jessica.changrussell@gcu.ac.uk to set up an appointment in advance. 

To view the details of our campus safety policies, please see the College Catalog:

-Section 7 Student Bill of Rights

-Section 8 Code of Student Conduct

-Section 16 Campus Safety

-Section 17 Emergency Action Plan

At GCNYC, campus safety is specifically the responsibility of the Vice President & Provost and the Director of Operations, Title IX Coordinator—to whom any questions or concerns should be directed. They are responsible for the campus’ annual security report, as well as all initiatives to maintain the safety and security of our campus. In compliance with relevant regulation (including the Clery Act, the Violence Against Women Act, Title IX, and New York State Educational Law article 129-A and B), the Vice President & Provost of GCNYC, or the Title IX Coordinator, will be responsible for identifying those College officials who qualify as Campus Security Authorities (CSAs). All College security are trained as CSAs.

For more information or to report an incident related to Title IX, Clery or any other crime, please contact the Title IX Coordinator at titleixcoordinator@gcu.ac.uk.

Office of Disability Services

Glasgow Caledonian New York College is committed to providing equal educational opportunity and participation for students with disabilities. We work with our students to determine appropriate and reasonable accommodations that support their equal access to a world-class education. Confidentiality is of the utmost importance, and disability-related information is never disclosed without student permission. 

Students with impairments and conditions may request accommodations to assist them in their GCNYC experience. To request an accommodation for a qualifying disability, a student must self-identify and contact the Disability Services Coordinator Michael Cohen, PhD at michael.cohen@gcu.ac.uk.  

Counseling

Mental health is an important aspect of student well-being. Students in need of counseling services should contact the Director of Counseling and Disability Services Coordinator, Michael Cohen, PhD at michael.cohen@gcu.ac.uk for referrals and information on scheduling an appointment. Students can schedule six 30-minute counseling sessions per trimester.

Health Services

While there is no health office on GCNYC’s campus, First Aid kits and defibrillators are on campus and available to all students. 

Select staff members have been trained in professional first-aid and can give appropriate referrals to those in need of urgent care. Urgent care services are not provided on campus. Students can visit the closest City MD to campus, which is located at 331 6th Avenue, New York City, NY 10014.

International Students seeking support for health services should contact the Director of Recruitment at admissions@gcnyc.com.

Career Development Services

GCNYC seeks to provide career resources designed to meet the needs of our graduate-level students enrolled in our social impact, fashion and risk management programs. Each trimester, the College will host a series of career workshops that help students build the in-demand technical and interpersonal skills needed for professional success. 

In addition to the more formal career development opportunities, GCNYC’s coursework continually encourages connections between course insights and students’ professions. Every program culminates in a master’s thesis that allows students to demonstrate their applied research skills and deep understanding of implementing sustainability into real-world business solutions. 

GCNYC is also delighted to share job opportunities with all of our students and alumni. Please feel free to join our GCNYC Student and Alumni LinkedIn Group and post the opportunities on our page. If you wish for these career development opportunities to be shared in a newsletter, please contact the Marketing Manager at marketing@gcnyc.com.
