The Interim Chancellor, who came out of retirement to take on the position, has referred to addressing City College’s financial crisis as “righting the ship”.

“Is there someone here who doesn’t want a City College? That doesn’t want free education? Is the focus just churning out degrees? And certainly, getting degrees and certificates is part of our mission. Also part of our mission has been to provide education for lifelong learning.”
