CUNY Service Corps

The CUNY Service Corps will mobilize CUNY students, faculty and staff to work on projects that improve the short and long-term civic, economic and environmental sustainability of New York City and of its residents and communities. The program’s goals are three-fold: for students to make a meaningful difference through service while gaining valuable real-world work experience, earning a wage, and where appropriate, receiving college credit; for faculty members and staff, through their work with students in the program, to have additional opportunities to apply their expertise to addressing many of the city’s key challenges; and for residents, communities, and project sponsors to realize concrete benefits as a result of CUNY Service Corps projects.

My Clubs

Phi Sigma Chi Fraternity Inc.

Phi Sigma Chi Fraternity Inc.

Phi Sigma Chi Multicultural Fraternity was founded on November 16, 1996 at the New York City College of Technology of the City University of New York. Phi Sigma Chi is a multicultural fraternity founded by six men, the Honorables Heraldo Gabriel, Carlos Lopez, Archer Hutchinson, Steven Lee, Noah Rodriguez, and Marvin Simon, who sought to establish an organization built on diversity and uniqueness. Striving to be diverse, different and unique has this organization where we want to be. We’ve formed a union amongst members of different races, religions and cultures all working toward a common goal to improve the state of our communities through leadership development. The first step toward accomplishing our goals was taken with the very first line, Alpha Chapter’s Alpha Line. Twenty men attended the first Informational Forum, ten were selected to pledge, and four crossed. These four were Elton Leonard, Jr., Robert Parris, Louis Osorio, Jr., and Robert Laroche. They laid the foundation for what will eventually become the largest fraternity at City Tech. Phi Sigma Chi rapidly grew in numbers and stature at City Tech. More lines were initiated and the service work that was produced by members strongly impacted the surrounding community. What was started at City Tech later expanded to Brooklyn College in the Fall of 1999. Founder Archer Hutchinson transferred to Brooklyn College in 1998 and helped create the Beta Chapter a year later with the help of Beta Chapter?s Alpha Line, Chetram Balram, Abid Hussain, Kelvin Barry, and Tyrek Richey. All Founding Brothers were student government members and leaders of various student clubs and organizations. At Brooklyn College Phi Sigma Chi sought to stand out from the crowd. One thing that set the group apart was its dedication to philanthropy and leadership development. The fraternity quickly started organizing speak-outs, drives, and campaigns to mobilize the student body around serious causes. In 2001 Founding Father Carlos Lopez set goals on expanding to the New York Institute of Technology (NYIT) New York City campus. After an intense intake process Founder Lopez crossed one of our fraternity’s future leaders, Founding Brother Foster “Legacy” Burton, III. Founding Brother Burton was passionate about his vision for this fraternity. Foster mobilized the fraternity to reach towards new heights and always challenged the brotherhood to do and be more. Phi Sigma Chi is currently concentrating on national expansion and taking steps to improve our level of community outreach. We are currently networking with other Greek-letter organizations in an attempt to collectively tackle issues of concern. With the continued support from alumni and undergraduate members and our sister organization, Delta Sigma Chi Sorority, Phi Sigma Chi continues to be that organization that our founders had in mind.
