Science Division 2016-2017 Annual Report



After a couple of years of big changes, including the move of thirty-some Science Division faculty to the new CDI building on the South Campus, we have now settled into a nice equilibrium in which our faculty can focus on what they do best: educate our students and perform cutting-edge research.

The Division of Science welcomed three new faculty members for the 2016-17 academic year. Michael Shub joined us as the first Martin & Michele Cohen Professor and as the new Chair of the Math Department. Professor Shub is a distinguished mathematician with a long career (including a previous stint at CUNY) and we are thrilled to have him at CCNY. He is profiled in detail in the section on new faculty. Also joining us as new faculty are two neuroscientists in the Biology Department: Andrey Rudenko joined us after a post-doctoral position at MIT, and Osceola Whitney came in January from a post-doctoral position at New Mexico State University. Both Rudenko and Whitney were appointed as Ruth Elkes Assistant Professors.

Science Division at CCNY


The Division of Science at City College has a proud legacy and a proud future.  Ten Nobel Laureates studied science and mathematics at CCNY.  World-renowned physicists like Myriam Sarachik, who serves on the governing council of the National Academy of Sciences, and well-known author Michio Kaku teach our students, and distinguished professors conduct cutting edge research on everything from climate change to structural biology to sustainable energy, and everything in between.  City College students, even as undergraduates, have an unprecedented opportunity to work in these labs.  In the past 8 years the Division has produced two Rhodes Scholars and several Goldwater and Truman scholars, as well as graduates who have gone on to the most prestigious graduate schools, supported by grants from the National Science Foundation to pursue their research.

Science students at City College have a wide array of degree choices.  They enroll in Bachelors and Masters of Science degrees in the fields and programs listed below.  The PHD is offered jointly by the City University of New York and City College in the laboratory-based sciences: biology, biochemistry, chemistry and physics.
