The centerpiece of the College’s new building — hailed by CUNY leaders as “a breathtaking space, 15 years in the making”— is the Rooftop Commons, a football-field size open-air plaza that gives John Jay its first actual “campus.” With a boldly modern design that sets a distinguished standard in 21stCentury urban outdoor spaces, the Commons is the only space of its kind in Midtown Manhattan.

As a natural bridge to anchor historic Haaren Hall on 10th Avenue with the new building’s 13-story Tower on 11th Avenue, the Rooftop Commons gives everyone on campus ready access to the College’s sleek new adjoining Cafeteria, Student Dining Hall, and a dining room and lounge for faculty and staff. Five stories above sidewalk level, the Commons brings a tranquil sense of order to the College’s physical layout: shade trees and lawns alternate with walkways and seating areas where John Jay students, faculty, and staff can mingle, enjoy conversation, and build the collegial bonds that can last a lifetime. Immediately adjoining the Plaza is the College’s sleek new food-service center, where a state-of-the-art commercial kitchen supports an expansive Cafeteria, Student Dining Hall, and a dining room and lounge for faculty and staff. As a natural bridge to anchor historic Haaren Hall on 10th Avenue with the new building’s 13-story Tower on 11th Avenue, The Plaza’s boldly modern design sets a distinguished standard in 21st- Century urban

Improved spaces enhance efforts to attract and keep first rate faculty and students, as well as enable the integration of research and education, and the cross-disciplinary pursuits that are hallmarks of contemporary practice.

Over the past decade, forensic experts— many from John Jay—have developed new tools for managing sudden-onset disasters, whether triggered by human action or natural causes. These innovations, along with proliferating wireless broadband capability, are enabling patrol and command centers to communicate ever faster and more comprehensively with first responders, to save more lives and further reduce harm. The College’s new state-ofthe- art Emergency Management (EM) Lab will serve as a repository of information and critical-incident analysis relevant to EM response. The Lab applies the latest technology—and the critical data it generates—to enhance utility and uniformity in EM standards and practices that College faculty are developing, promoting, and teaching their students.

The EM Lab will also enable advanced students to experience EM simulation. In exercises that give them just enough information to make decisions as if they were first responders, commanders, journalists, or other key actors, they consider issues in ethics, command, communication, and media. The class then reviews the next time segment in the incident to see which of their decisions worked, and which did not. The EM Lab will also serve as a real-time EM operations center, with plans in the works to seek interoperability with similar centers maintained by the Port Authority, FEMA, and the Department of Defense.

Very tall buildings pose particular challenges in emergencies. Experts at John Jay have been working on these problems for more than a decade, and their findings have led, for example, to better understanding of the effects of construction materials on responders’ radio transmissions and to new strategies for high-rise evacuations.

The College’s new state-of-the-art High- Rise Simulator Lab will help turn these innovations into working knowledge, skills, and best practices for the next generation of public-safety professionals. The Lab puts John Jay students virtually at the scene of a high-rise emergency where their job is to assess response contingencies and to develop and test solutions.

With its panoramic interactive presentation model, the Lab allows professors and students to explore what one John Jay expert calls “situational awareness.” This term refers to the capacity of first responders and commanders to use electronic imaging to create and share real-time multi-perspective views of an entire event as it is happening. Instead of being limited to the view from their own geographic location, responders can access information about what is occurring from many angles beyond their field of vision in and around a disasterstruck high-rise. The results are setting new standards for high-rise safety that will inform emergency response, improve building codes, and help keep our cities safer.

The 1,337-square-foot Black Box Theater is nothing short of a “creativity incubator”: an unadorned yet provocative performance space that can be transformed into any setting imaginable. Every type of production can be staged here, from Shakespeare to contemporary experimental theater, stand-up comedy, cabaret, dance, a Battle of the DJs, TV and film production, and more.

As its name suggests, the Black Box Theater’s absence of interior color helps reinforce the audience’s sense of being “anywhere or nowhere.” With a full complement of theatrical lighting and a fully equipped sound stage, the Black Box is ideal for any event requiring minimal scenery and sets, and allows fast set-up and break-down for concurrent productions. The black-box style, with its focus on actors rather than décor, has sometimes been seen as a “purer” form of theater.

Seating options are almost limitless.

In addition to retractable tiered seating, the Black Box can be configured for theater-inthe- round or for “thrust” theater (in which the audience surrounds the actors on three sides).

The Black Box can also be used for meetings, conferences, and receptions of up to 110 persons.

Sunlit by floor-to-ceiling windows, the 6,035-square-foot, 400-seat Student Dining Hall offers a sparkling ambience that is a far cry from lunch areas recalled by earlier generations of students. By contrast, this Hall opens onto the green landscape of the new rooftop Plaza, affords plenty of congenial space for study or conversation, and overlooks the Hudson River.

Offering a wide-ranging eat-in or take-out menu, the Hall will feature a healthy-food station, with fresh salads and juices. The new kitchen is outfitted to meet the foodservice needs of the entire campus and will provision all campus food-vending machines with healthful snacks. It will implement such “green” practices as recycling cooking oils and purchasing sustainably manufactured paper products.

The Hall’s physical space is as versatile as its cuisine: It can be partitioned to accommodate conferences and other special events, and features a drop-down projection screen with enhanced audiovisual capabilities.

Devoted to lectures, plenary sessions, and other presentations for the College community and the public, the auditorium features 250 ergonomically designed seats, each with a retractable desktop, installed in wide rows tiered and staggered so that every seat has a full view of the proceedings. Much like the College’s 65 new “smart” classrooms, the Grand Lecture Hall brings a student-focused approach to the latest technology. The space is fully outfitted with multiple electronic devices; remote management and simplified laptop connectivity; oversize projection screens along with projectors, cameras, and microphones; upgraded touch-control panels for managing all audiovisual equipment; and back-end technological enhancements to facilitate distance learning. Recessed lighting, acoustically advanced construction techniques, and an interior-design palette that helps focus all eyes front-and-center combine to create, for the first time at John Jay, an ideal setting for presentations and programs.

John Jay’s new Crime Mapping Lab advances the College’s stature at the forefront of “Educating for Justice” by creating a cutting-edge learning environment to familiarize students with the kinds of approaches and techniques that are rapidly transforming the criminal justice field. The Lab is dedicated to training students and law enforcement professionals in the advanced skills that will set them apart as some of the nation’s most sophisticated crime-analysis problem-solvers.

Today, the traditional “wait-and-respond” approach to community police work is yielding to an intelligence-led approach that combines high-speed computing with social media and instant access to vast electronic databases. The Lab’s type of “smart” technology helps professionals to predict crimes before they occur and to solve actual crimes more rapidly, keeping families, communities, and society as a whole safer and more secure.
