Campus Resources for Faculty

Media Equipment
Almost all on-campus classrooms are “smart rooms,” equipped with a computer, LCD projector and internet access. If your assigned classroom is not a smart room, you may request any of these resources to be delivered to your classroom. Instructors should arrive early to set up the equipment. A listing of available technology in the classrooms is available here.

  • Hudson Valley Campus Chronicle
    The Campus Chronicle is a daily electronic newspaper, which the college uses to alert employees of new policies and important news. Any member of the faculty or staff may submit information and/or articles to the Campus Chronicle.
