Three CUNY Leaders Assume New Duties

The Board of Trustees has appointed Dr. Fred B. Malamet, a veteran with more than 30 years’ service to Kings borough Community College, to be its interim president following the resignation of Byron McClenney. Malamet, a professor of behavioral sciences and human services, was previously the Manhattan Beach campus’s dean of academic affairs and dean of its faculty. The holder of degrees from Brooklyn College, Columbia and Rutgers Universities, Malamet will assume his post in December.

The board also appointed CUNY’s long-serving Vice Chancellor for University Relations, Jay Hershenson, to serve also as Secretary of the Board of Trustees. Hershenson’s CUNY career began with a B.A. in communications, arts and sciences and university administration, and an M.A. in urban studies, both from Queens College. He has been a senior CUNY administrator since 1978, working with six Chancellors and more than 100 trustees. He previously held leadership posts in non-profit organizations in New York City.

Earlier, at its June meeting, the trustees approved the establishment of a new School of Professional Studies at the University Center of the Graduate School. This school is intended to provide comprehensive and flexible educational services in response to changes in the social and business environment, with particular attention to the needs of government, not-for-profit entities, businesses, and unions. The school’s founding dean, John Mogulescu, will continue to serve as the University dean for academic affairs and deputy to Executive Vice Chancellor Louise Mirrer.
