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?

Resignation of Dr. Maurizio Trevisan

February 05, 2019

Dear City College Community,

On Friday, February 1st, I accepted, with regret, the resignation letter of Dr. Maurizio Trevisan. Dr. Trevisan is the founding dean of the CUNY School of Medicine, and before that, the dean of the Sophie Davis School of Biomedical Education. For years, while dean of our medical programs, he also served as CCNY's provost. The evolution of the Sophie Davis School to the CUNY School of Medicine was in large part due to the efforts of Dr. Trevisan, and I am deeply grateful for his time and attention.
