Chris Gavin

My name is Chris Gavin and I have the unique distinction of being an academic advisor here at John Jay. Working in this capacity has given me the opportunity to work with our vibrant student population by helping them achieve to the best of their ability while studying toward their bachelor’s degree.

Having a background in the car business and a degree in Criminal Justice, some students wonder how I ended up as an academic advisor. While I indeed have hopes and aspirations to work in the field of law enforcement, working as an advisor has given me the desire to work with students, too. Specifically, I would like to work in the field of criminal justice in addition to working as an educator to hopefully give back some of what I have learned over the years. So, very much like John Jay’s motto implies, I would like to not only work for justice, but to “educate for justice” as well.

With that said, welcome to John Jay and the wonderful experiences you will have here. I look forward to working with you soon!

Christopher Gavin Jr.
