Campus Solutions: Instruction and Advising

This module has various features for faculty, advisers, deans, and chairs:

  • Faculty can create and view weekly instructional calendar by daily, weekly, and monthly views
  • Faculty can view Class Rosters as soon as students register—and email your entire class or specific individuals from the rosters
  • Faculty advisers can use Advanced Advisement Tools to:
    • See, in real time, student transcripts, current class schedule, and contact information, with the ability to contact students directly through CUNYfirst;
    • E-mail an individual student or all your student advisees;
    • Contact your advisee’s instructors through CUNYfirst; and
    • View "holds" and other service indicators.
  • Deans and chairs can view an instructor’s teaching history.
  • Enrollment and instructor data feeds directly into Blackboard.
  • A University-wide standard process will post grades electronically:
    • This is an advantage for professors/adjuncts who have multiple campus postings.
    • Quicker postings to student transcripts will support timely registration for pre- and corequisite requirements.

Activating Your Lehman E-Mail Account

CUNYfirst will send messages ONLY to your Lehman e-mail account. Please be sure that your account is activated.

Most faculty and staff members already have a Lehman e-mail account. The format follows this sequence: first name / period / last name Example: E-mail accounts for faculty and staff who are new to Lehman as of Fall 2011 were generated at the beginning of the semester; the same process was generated for Spring 2012. Contact the IT Help Desk in Information Technology Resources to check on the status of your account.
