January 27, 2014 | The Chancellor's Report
Interim Chancellor William P. Kelly welcomed Chancellor-designate James Milliken, the unanimous choice of the diverse committee that conducted the nationwide search, and expressed his strong desire to work with the Chancellor-designate during the period of transition. Kelly reported on steady enrollment growth for winter intersession courses, with enrollment at nearly 17,000 students or 15% above the previous intersession record.
The Interim Chancellor noted that Accelerated Studies in Associate Programs, or ASAP, a CUNY initiative nationally recognized for innovation and improvement of graduation rates, was profiled recently in The New York Times, The Atlantic and The Chronicle of Higher Education. Kelly will participate on the panel, “CUNY: The Road to Success,” which will examine ways to continue to improve graduation rates at community colleges.
