Chancellor’s Report to the Board of Trustees

May 5, 2014 | The Chancellor's Report

In his final report to the University community, Interim Chancellor William P. Kelly discusses a new initiative responding  to Mayor de Blasio efforts to position  education as a cornerstone of his master plan for the city’s future.  ‘Educating a Competitive Workforce for the 21st Century’ will “ensure that CUNY students and graduates are well-equipped to compete in the changing economy or STEM-related professions,” says Kelly. To achieve these goals, the initiative recommends support for  additional faculty, a significant enhancement in academic and career counseling services,  and the expansions of the very successful CUNY START and ASAP programs.
