Macaulay Academic & Administrative Support

Mentoring and Advisement

A supportive and integrated advising system that enables each student to take full advantage of the vast resources of CUNY and New York City is one of the unique features that attract students to Macaulay Honors College.

Whether students are interested in graduate or professional school, exposure to a specific field of work or community service, or starting something that has never existed before, Macaulay Advisors on the campuses of the eight senior colleges–and also at Macaulay–connect them with the resources to succeed in college and in life. We encourage you to build a network over the course of your Macaulay career to achieve what you imagined and beyond.

Honors Directors and Advisors

Your Honors College Director and Advisor are your strongest advocates. Together with your instructors and teaching faculty, they can help you not merely to succeed but to excel. Your campus Macaulay team will work with you to customize your choices in curriculum, research, internships, study abroad, and other opportunities for enriching your college experience.

Macaulay Honors College students tend to be involved—very involved—which can sometimes feel overwhelming. If you find it difficult to juggle your commitments, your Advisor or Director is your best resource.  They can answer questions, suggest other resources, and generally help you figure out strategies to succeed in college to the best of your abilities.

Macaulay Central Staff

Those who work at Macaulay, from the Dean on down, are there to help you make the most of your academic experience. If you have any questions or concerns, you can find contact information for all Macaulay staff here.


Macaulay Honors College faculty are drawn from the eight senior (beginning with class of 2017) partner colleges, Macaulay Central and the larger CUNY community. Macaulay faculty consists of distinguished professors, accomplished researchers, and experienced academic instructors. Macaulay Scholars develop close relationships with Macaulay faculty, working with them in laboratories, in fieldwork, and in the creative arts.
