Passing of Donald K. Jordan, Executive Vice President of the CCNY Alumni Association

August 12, 2019

Dear Members of the City College Community,

It is my truly heavy responsibility to relate the news that Don Jordan, who for so many years led the City College Alumni Association, has passed away. For thirty-two years, Don served as the Association’s Executive Vice President, a position that put him in charge of a vast array of planning and day to day operations for the Association. Don truly lived for CCNY and the CCNY Alumni Association, and for over three decades, it thrived under his stewardship.

Thank You Wendy Thornton

August 06, 2019

Dear Members of the Campus Community,

Over the past year or so, as we’ve undertaken a fairly large number of searches to fill vacancies on the campus leadership team, we also asked members of our community to step in and provide for the college’s needs on an interim basis. One of these interim appointments ended recently, when I asked Celia Lloyd to assume the position of Vice President for Students and Enrollment.

Vice President of Student Affairs Announcement

July 25, 2019

Dear Members of the City College Community,

I'm writing to say that after a long search conducted by some very hard working members of the search committee to find a new Vice President of Student Affairs, I've declared that search failed. We had a finalist in the search, but were ultimately unable to come to terms with her, and I was not prepared to go deeper into the pool.

Urban Gardens at City College

June 14, 2019

Dear Members of the City College Community,

For some time now, and in connection to a number of different initiatives, several of you have asked about the possibility of building something like a campus garden, where interested people could participate and where produce could conceivably be sent to our food pantry. Some time ago we asked David Robinson to look into this, and he's spent a fair amount of time scouring the campus to find a location that would work—both logistically and in terms of providing what the plants themselves need.

President's Social Hour

May 14, 2019

To the CCNY Community,

This Thursday, at 4:30 PM, I am pleased to host the first of what will be a series of periodic social hours for college faculty and staff. I think it's a good idea for us to set aside a little bit of time to spend with one another on a more social footing, but I'm also scheduling this hour more specifically at the request of the college Ombudsperson, Professor William Crain - who believes, rightly I think, that the fabric of our community would be strengthened if we spent a little more time together.

Middle States Memo from President Boudreau

April 12, 2019

Dear Colleagues,

As you'll know, we had our Middle States monitoring visit this past Wednesday and Thursday. Here's how this works: at the end of the visit, the monitoring team reads a preliminary assessment of what they found, and we then receive a more formal written report in two weeks. Ours will come on May 2nd, and I'll share it with the campus immediately. Over the next several months, that report will work its way through the commission and we'll have a final determination following the 4th of July holiday.

President Boudreau's Statement on the Christchurch Attacks

March 19, 2019

Dear City College Community,

I know that some of you carry the weight of the Christchurch attacks around with you. You may wonder if there will ever be a time when you can take for granted your acceptance into any community that is distant from the land of your ancestors. You may be searching the eyes of the people you meet with new questions who does this person think I am? What do I need to fear from this person's prejudice?
