Faculty Spotlight


Barry Nemeroff

Since 1989, the College’s Science and Technology Entry Program (STEP), currently led by its Director Barry Nemeroff of the Science Department, has been encouraging middle and high school students towards careers in the STEM fields, and directing and counseling these students toward interest in the NYS licensed professions, including the allied health professions. Mr. Nemeroff came to John Jay after a 36-year career as a science teacher and a guidance counselor with the New York City Department of Education to lead the STEP program. The STEP Program is an academic enrichment program sponsored by an annual grant from the New York State Education Department, geared toward increasing the participation of historically-underrepresented minorities, as well as economically-disadvantaged youth in the STEM fields. The Program improves student readiness for college and careers in these fields.
