Space Planning

Academic Affairs space planning aims to determine the purpose, functional requirements, and basic layout of specific areas used by full-time and part-time faculty and staff. Annual department reviews of their current floor plans assist our office in effectively managing all available rooms and addressing the need for additional offices or meeting places.  Our office can also assist in faculty and staff office relocation processes or office reconfigurations.

For space planning requests, please contact Debra Hairston at dhairston@jjay.cuny.edu

Instructor/Advisor Table

The Instructor/Advisor Table maintains instructor and advisor data that is used by other pages in CUNYfirst and other connected systems.
Instructors must be in this table before they can be selected as an instructor in the Coursedog scheduling system. The instructor must be listed in the Coursedog in order to use CUNYfirst Faculty Self-Service to view class rosters, enter grades, and to access Blackboard for their specific class(es).
An individual must already exist in the CUNYfirst system with an established Employee ID in order to add them to the Instructor/Advisor table. Empl ID is created upon instructor's initial hire by CUNY.  Each instructor has one Empl ID across the CUNY system, no matter the number of jobs they were hired for during their career at the University.

To add faculty to Instructor/Advisor Table, please contact Kate Gribbin at kgribbin@jjay.cuny.edu

Blackboard Access 

Departments may find a need to request Blackboard access for supplemental instructors, student success coaches, or teaching assistants who are not listed by the Registrar Scheduling Unit as the instructors of record and need to be manually added for Blackboard purposes only. Requests are handled on individual bases and specific rules are applied to determine appropriate access for each requestor.

To request manual enrollment in Blackboard please contact apfaculty@jjay.cuny.edu

Use the Manual Blackboard Course Enrollment Request form for more information and to complete your request.
