President Brown Town Hall

On April 19th, our Director of Student Advocacy, Molly Dunbar, held a Town Hall that included Dr. Brown and her entire cabinet. Students, faculty, and staff were able to present their questions for direct answers from President Brown herself. Dr. Brown also gave her State of the College Address where she spoke about the status of the new building, SUNY Korea, Kaufman Hall construction, and the new graduate courses in Brooklyn.

  • Earlier this year, students were able to study Fashion Design and Fashion Business Management at Korea for the first time ever. Currently at SUNY Korea, FIT and Stony Brook are the only schools offering programs on campus.
  • Kaufman Hall will now open a backdoor entrance for easier move in and out accessibility. Con Edison will be fixing the back end of 9th avenue so residents can expect to hear some noise late night to early morning on the lower levels.
  • FIT now is offering graduate courses in Sunset Park, Brooklyn at the Brooklyn Army Terminal. Their most notable one is their Drones! Learn To Fly (RPT 100) course.

A multitude of topics had been asked about, ranging from campus accessibility, the new building, residence halls, etc. The topic of main conversation was campus accessibility. Accessibility has been an issue on campus for some time, the administration got to hear first hand about the struggles of navigating the college.

Should you have any further questions, and would like them to be sent to the president’s office for review, please email the Student Government Association account at fitstudentgov@fitnyc.edu.
