As the college has seen ten years of chancellors dropping out or losing good standing, it will be a dramatic change of pace to transfer to a four-year Chancellor.
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”. As he prepares to leave the helm, students and faculty continue to work to reconcile salaries and employment with his administration’s Multi-Year Budget Plan.
Cuts to staff and classes may increase demands on City College’s counseling services and retention programs that largely serve underrepresented students, yet the programs themselves may not be fully spared.
