President's Holiday Message

December 21, 2018

Dear Colleagues,

As I write this, the campus is all but empty, with so many of you having already left to begin your holiday break.  Some of you will be on campus over the next days--securing our facilities, grading papers, keeping things running and safe.  But for most of us, these next few days will be spent away from campus, with another semester safely tucked away.

I hope that each of you finds joy and peace in these coming holidays, that you're able to share good food with friends, and surround yourselves with people you love, and who love you.

Administrative Changes

December 06, 2018

Dear Colleagues,

I'm writing to announce some changes in our administrative structure. As many of you know, Len Zinnanti will be retiring at the end of next week. Len came to CCNY at a time of some significant turbulence, and exercised a calming and ordered sense of management over our non-academic operation. As the person with oversight on our facilities and financial apparatus, Len was given authority over some of the most crucial areas of the campus, and he's served us all very well. I wish him the very best in his future endeavors, and I know that you join me in that.

Campus Wide Freeze Announcement

November 13, 2018

Dear Colleagues,

As you know, the College is facing a daunting budget deficit this year. Over the past weeks, we have been in negotiations with CUNY over our FY19 financial plan, and have also been working through the development of a plan to present to Middle States that makes progress against our financial difficulties. During this time it became clear that CUNY does not have the resources to help us entirely fill a hole of this magnitude, and the university instructed us to take measures that would significantly redress these issues.

Reaffirmation of Commitment to Diversity/Equal Opportunity/Affirmative Action

October 30, 2018

The City University of New York (CUNY) has a long-standing commitment to diversity and equal opportunity in all aspects of employment practices. At City College, I fully support the policies and practices that we have implemented to foster non-discrimination, affirmative action, and diversity and inclusion in the workplace. It is my personal belief that City College is enriched by the strengths of the people and perspectives represented here.

Statement on Political, Racial, and Ethnic Violence

October 30, 2018

Over the past 10 days, America has been visited by some of the varied manifestations of hatred. Murderous attacks on Jewish people in Pittsburgh. White supremacist murders in Kentucky. Alarmist lies about immigrant bands of criminals and terrorists at our doorstep. Politically motivated pipe bombs, mailed to some of the most prominent critics of the Trump administration--or, in some cases, targets of President Trump's ire.

Staff Town Hall

October 26, 2018

Dear staff members of the City College community,

As many of you have heard, some of your colleagues have been hard at work putting together the foundational documents for a staff council that will eventually be integrated into the CCNY governance plan. I was presented with the plans for the Council, and I'm really excited that this is underway, and fully supportive of it.
