Baruch Status, Post-Sandy

Hi All:

As you may have noticed, the Baruch College website and all web services, including Blogs@Baruch and VOCAT, are not available. Baruch is without power, and though backup power kept things running through Tuesday night, they ran out of fuel. CUNY will re-open tomorrow except for Kingsborough, BMCC, CSI, and Baruch. CON ED claims all in Manhattan will have power back tomorrow or Saturday, so assume information and access will increase then.

Hope you’re all weathering the storm well. As far as I know, I’m the only member of the f/t staff who currently has power, as I’ve fled NJ for family near Philly. You can email me at lwaltzer at, or call my cell (in the sig of the emails you’ve gotten from me) if you need anything. Mikhail and Tom are without power in NJ, though occasionally charging… you can reach them at mikhailgershovich at and thomasharbison at Suzanne is in the city, and I’m not sure if her power situation, but her non-Baruch email is suzaep at

Hang in there folks. Looking forward to us all getting back to our work soon.
