Important Notice: Professor Neville Parker

Dear members of the City College Community,

It is my sad duty to share the news that Dr. Neville Parker, who for years served as a faculty member in the Grove School of Engineering, passed away this past week.  Dr. Parker graduated from the City College of New York with the BE in Civil Engineering in 1965, and went on to earn a PhD from Cornell University.  He returned to his alma mater in 1988, after stints at Howard University and the University of Dar Es Salaam. At CCNY, he joined the civil engineering department, held the Herbert G. Kayser professorship, and served as associate director and director of the Institute for Transportation Systems.  Throughout his career, he worked to promote the entrance and success of students of color in STEM fields and made huge advances in this area on campus. In recognition of his stature in the field, the Council of University Transportation Centers awards two Neville Parker Awards each year to graduate students working in the field of transportation.  Dr. Parker was a distinguished and committed leader in his academic field and on our campus, and we will miss him dearly.
