Executive Committee

CAT Executive Committee



The CUNY CAT Executive Committee (EC) is an advisory body that includes the director, senior management personnel and representative faculty scientists. The faculty members are elected biannually by the CAT scientists.

The EC advises the director on the overall policies, long-term goals and strategies of the center. The EC is regularly consulted on proposed cost sharing for sponsored projects (“CAT match”), new and revised program initiatives and significant expenditures on equipment and facilities.
