Dear Students, Faculty, and Staff,

This Thursday, April 26, the college campus will host the Check Your Blind Spots Mobile Tour, a series of events in partnership with CEO Action for Diversity & Inclusion™, which aims to reveal the nuances of unconscious bias, or blind spots, that can narrow a person's vision and potentially influence behaviors.

Middle States Announcement to the faculty and staff

April 11, 2018

Dear Colleagues,

We just finished receiving our preliminary oral report from the Middle States team. To put that report in context, we will receive, 10 days from now, a written and edited version of that report. It will also be sent to Middle States Central (if they use that nomenclature) and we will have a formal set of findings by June. So this is a very preliminary report, but I didn't want to keep you in the dark.

Staff Town Hall

March 09, 2018

Dear City College Staff,

Some of you may have been present at last week’s Task Force Town Hall where the college community were invited to come and share their thoughts and have their questions answered. Many of you have heard about the Task Force on the Future of City College that I have convened.

I would like to make myself available to the staff, to hear exclusively from you, your thoughts and to answer any questions and concerns you may have. Please join me on Wednesday, March 14th from 12:30 pm - 1:30 pm in Shepard Hall, room 250 for a Staff Town Hall.

Student Support Changes Memo

March 06, 2018

To the Campus Community

I am writing to let you know of a staffing change I'm making in the area of student support services.

In order to enhance our capacity to coordinate and trouble shoot problems in the area of student services, I have asked Celia Lloyd to work more closely with and coordinate the functions of the student support services areas (admissions, financial aid, registrar, evaluation and testing and scheduling). These offices will now report directly to Celia, and she will carry the title of AVP for Academic Momentum and Student Success.

Reschedule of Task Force Town Hall

February 21, 2018

Dear Colleagues,

I had originally scheduled a town hall to discuss the task force for this Thursday, the 22nd, at 12:30, not knowing that the union has a meeting set for that same day. Because the union is an important stakeholder on this campus and we want the task force conversation to be as inclusive as possible, I am moving the task force town hall meeting to Thursday, March 1st at 12:30 pm.

I look forward to seeing as many of you as possible at that meeting.

The Task Force on the Future of City College

February 15, 2018

I'm writing to discuss the task force that I've convened. Under normal circumstances, a new president would convene a strategic planning process, designed to outline her or his vision of the college and to set priorities for the new administration. We have just passed through a lengthy strategic planning process that set some goals for our work, many of which are worthy. What we have not done—what that planning process did not accomplish—is to take on the long-term, structural difficulties that the college faces.

The President's Holiday message

December 22, 2017

Dear Colleagues,

I'm writing to wish each of you a joyful holiday season, a restful break from the work we do together, and a prosperous and rewarding new year.

These last few weeks have been a whirlwind for me—even more than the normal whirlwind that accompanies the weeks leading to a semester's break. In all that activity, I haven't yet had the chance to write to everyone on our campus about the leadership change at CCNY. So with your indulgence, I'd like to take the opportunity of this message to correct that lapse.
