Class Act


How can you claim 800 square feet in an architecturally distinguished building near Gramercy Park for as little as $100,000?

By joining Baruch's Class Act program, you can lay claim to an exclusive piece of Manhattan real estate and make a lasting contribution to the lives of current and future Baruch students.

Every week, more than 18,000 students use our 92 state-of-the-art classrooms. All classrooms are in the innovative 17-floor William and Anita Newman Vertical Campus, which was honored in 2003 by the American Institute of Architects with the highest award it offers to an individual building. Its "smart" classrooms include live Internet, teleconferencing, and video playback—cutting edge technology that helps prepare students for today's careers.

Half of the classrooms have already been named. If you are interested, please contact Nicole Souza at 646-660-6083 or

Clivner=Field Plaza

In 2013, the Baruch College campus gained a transformative outdoor space located along 25th Street, between Lexington and Third Avenues. This marked the biggest improvement to the student experience since the opening of the Newman Vertical Campus in 2001. Now you have a special opportunity to help make the Plaza a welcoming place for students, faculty, alumni, and the community to gather, study and relax.

Soon, 25th Street will undergo an extraordinary makeover and be reborn as CLIVNER = FIELD PLAZA. As part of this beautification effort, you have the chance to purchase a paver, bench, or planter. Learn more >

Faculty and Research Support

To compete with top academic institutions, Baruch needs to provide support for their faculty to hire graduate assistants; travel to conferences to present research; purchase data, software and special hardware; and develop new classes or curricula.

Endowed chairs enable Baruch to attract outstanding talent to the faculty. Because the endowment secures the position itself, it enables Baruch to appoint a distinguished professor and build a tradition of leadership in the selected discipline. The endowed chair is widely recognized as the most prestigious honor a college can bestow upon a faculty member.

Research funds are crucial to strengthening and providing the resources needed for faculty to advance in their discipline. Funds also help junior faculty members and graduate students to explore their own original ideas and research methods.

Other opportunities to support Baruch faculty include gifts for deanships, junior faculty positions, visiting professorships, and key staff positions. If you are interested, please contact Donna Haggarty at 646-660-6089 or


Baruch believes that every student should have access to the best education regardless of household income. The reality is that some of the most-talented high school graduates accepted to Baruch will never step foot on campus. It’s not because they lack desire or are unwilling to work hard for a college education, but because they cannot afford the full cost of an education—tuition and living expenses can add up to what their families earn in an entire year.

Each year, Baruch puts a degree within reach for thousands of students who without financial aid might not ever have the opportunity. Unfortunately, the College is not able to help every students without additional support from alumni like you. This year, Baruch launched its first-ever dedicated scholarship campaign to help more students earn a life-changing college education.

Sponsor a Computer

Known to many Baruch students as the 6th floor computer lab, the Martin E. (’59) and Laurie Kaplan Computing and Technology Center was recently renovated into a state-of-the-art facility to keep pace with ever-shifting and emerging technologies. This renovation included computer workstations that are some of the most-used and most-appreciated assets in the lab, providing students easy and flexible access to the space and tools that they depend on for their academic work.

For a limited-time, you can sponsor a computer workstation, where your name and generosity will be recognized on the computer’s wallpaper (background). Learn more >
