New Faculty

Most of the CUNY GC faculty are appointed to the doctoral faculty after being hired at a CUNY College.   They continue to work with undergraduates at the college where they were hired but now teach doctoral courses and in addtition take on the responsibilities of a doctoral faculty member at the CUNY Graduate Center.  New appointments in mathematics over the past five years are listed below:
