Human Resources

The Office of Human Resources (OHR) at the CUNY Graduate Center, led by Executive Director David Boxill, handles the human resources functions of the Newmark J-School.

These functions include overseeing job searches, sending offer letters, managing new-hire orientations, processing employee benefits, maintaining time and leave records, supervising mandated staff trainings, and overseeing reappointments, reclassifications, search waivers, HEO performance reviews, leaves of absence, separations, unemployment, and retirements.

For a complete list of OHR services, new-hire information, benefits summary, and employee resources, go to the GC’s Office of Human Resources website.

The OHR works closely with the human resources liaisons here at the J-School. The school’s HR team is made up of Assistant Dean for Administration Colleen Leigh, Director of Academic Operations Amy Dunkin, and Associate Director of Academic Operations Marie Desir.

Together, they help develop job descriptions, provide guidance to search committees, generate reappointment letters, handle payroll issues, and manage onboarding of new employees, among other duties.
