First Health, Safety Director Named

The City University now has its first University Director of Environmental Health and Safety. Senior Vice Chancellor Allan H. Dobrin has announced the appointment of Howard Apsan to the new office as part of an agreement with the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency to conduct environmental self-audits on all CUNY campuses. Apsan, whose bachelor’s and master’s degrees are from Brooklyn College, holds a Ph.D. in political science from Columbia University, where he has taught graduate seminars since 1986 as an adjunct professor. He is senior vice president for the consulting firm of Marshall & Stevens, Inc.

The University agreed to review its environmental practices, self-report any violations it finds, take steps to correct management deficiencies and to prevent violations from recurring.

“CUNY has hit a home run for the environment,” said Jane M. Kenny, EPA’s regional administrator. Chancellor Matthew Goldstein said, “Whether you work or study at a CUNY college, or visit a campus for a community event, we want you to know that we are taking the necessary actions to ensure a safe and happy environment.”
