Human Resources

The mission of the Office of Human Resources is to attract and employ highly qualified and committed individuals while providing exceptional human resources related services to current, prospective, and former employees of the Borough of Manhattan Community College. We strive to achieve these goals through an effective recruitment process that attracts, selects, and on-boards qualified faculty and staff, and by fostering a diverse work environment that respects and values its employees and their differences. We promote organizational development through training and growth opportunities that support individual success and further the value of the institution and its mission. We also support all managers by providing them with employee relations guidance and communicating policies and procedures to ensure compliance.



Employees and Guests must take a daily Wellness Check Survey before entering any BMCC location. The Everbridge’s Health Screening app survey has five short questions.  Due to changes to the NYS travel guidelines if you have traveled to CT, MA, NJ, PA, and VT during the past 7 days, answer “NO” to “Have you traveled outside of New York State or traveled internationally during the past 7 days?”.  If you have traveled to a state other than CT, MA, NJ, PA, and VT, or traveled internationally, you must answer “YES” to this question.

Instructions for the methods to take the survey and FAQ are available at CUNY.EDU/Coronavirus/health-screening. Visitors should use the Visitors’ Guide for instructions.

The problem experienced on some android devices, when a user clicked YES in response to a question and then corrected it by clicking NO to complete the Health Screening questionnaire has been resolved.

Employees who are not cleared to enter must provide medical clearance to HR before returning to the college.  To find a testing site, you may text COVID TEST to 855-48. After entering your zip code, a list of available testing sites will be provided.  

The New York State Department of Health

The New York State Department of Health has revised the COVID-19 testing protocol.   Individuals who fit the prioritization categories (pdf), and do not currently have access to testing should call the New York State COVID-19 Hotline at 1-888-364-3065 or to be screened for eligibility, and if eligible, to have an appointment scheduled at a DOH testing site.
