Marisol Otero-Morales, the Academic Program Coordinator for the Urban Policy and Planning Department, provides administrative support to the department chair and program directors for the department’s three academic programs: M.S. in Urban Policy and Leadership, Master of Urban Planning, and B.A. in Urban Studies. Ms. Otero-Morales is the “go-to” person for students in need of assistance navigating the various systems for managing course registrations, course access, and finances such as CUNYfirst and Blackboard. She also manages the department’s weekly e-newsletter and coordinates departmental events.
Mrs. Otero-Morales holds an M.S. in Disability Services in Higher Education from the CUNY School of Professional Studies and a B.A. in Law and Society from the CUNY Baccalaureate Program.
Deborah Ugo-Omenukwa, the College Assistant for the Urban Policy and Planning Department, provides administrative support to the Academic Program Coordinator/AHEO. Deborah is the first person you’ll see when you enter UPP’s main office. She’s always ready to assist visitors or direct them to the appropriate person or office. She’s the person on the other side of the phone when you call the UPP department. She also manages the department’s weekly e-newsletter and coordinates departmental events.
Deborah is a current Macaulay Honors student majoring in psychology with the hopes of graduating early and moving on to pursue a Psy.D. to become a clinical psychologist.
