Dear Members of the City College Community, I am so sad to bring you the news that Professor Rishi Raj passed away this week, following a protracted illness against which he struggled mightily. He was at home, surrounded by his family and that, his daughter Rashmi reports, was a great comfort to them all. She was also particular to share the news that Rishi was tremendously proud to have finished off this past semester with his students; seeing it through to completion became one of his most fixed goals as his health declined, and that drive is emblematic of his dedication to… Read More »

Dear Friends, It's Karaoke time! Some of you cheer. Some of you groan. But really, what better way can there be to mark the start of the holiday season than a gathering that highlights the talent (or the audacity) of your colleagues? And what holiday gift can be more sweet than the discovery of a hidden talent in someone who works down the hall from you? At any rate, by now it's a tradition, and like fruitcake or cranberry sauce, whether or not you like it is actually beside the point. Ah: tradition! Seriously, I'm really happy to invite you all to the CCNY Holiday Karaoke… Read More »

Dear Members of the Campus Community, I've expressed, in other campus outreaches, my great pleasure in being able to participate in the resumption of our on-campus life. Following months of social isolation, the repopulation of our buildings and grounds by students, faculty and staff is an undiluted joy, and I hope you share with me that pleasure.  But our reunion is not without difficulties. We now meet one another in a moment of substantially rising social anxiety, without the assistance of practiced and smooth social interaction. Some of the anxiety lies rooted in the… Read More »
