Welcome Message from the President
I am delighted that you have chosen to be part of the CUNY Bronx Community College family. You have joined us at a time of major transformation to the academic and support services we offer our students and widespread physical improvements to our Landmark campus. Your talents, skills and dedication will help us meet our number one goal: the successful completion and graduation of our students.
Bronx Community College students come here with a dream and leave with a certificate or degree, prepared for a career or to continue their education at a four-year college and beyond. I invite you to join me in accomplishing the goals that are outlined in our strategic plan (http://www.bcc.cuny.edu/Strategic-Plan/) and those that I articulated during this year’s faculty and staff convocation. We strive to make BCC the best community college by strengthening the campus climate; focusing on student retention, graduation and success; implementing an effective professional development program for faculty and staff; focusing on scholarship and assessment; and, forging a community with the larger community of the Bronx.
No matter what your role is at BCC, you can make a difference for your department, your colleagues and the students whose lives we touch every day. To support you and the work you do, my mission and that of the Office of the President is to “to create a college-wide environment conducive for effective teaching, learning and professional growth for our students, faculty and staff.” Together we will make a difference for over 11,000 students seeking a credit bearing certificate or degree and for over 12,000 students who participate in our continuing education programs.
This website is here to help you. Our University is a complex urban institution. CUNY is composed of 23 colleges and professional schools. There are many regulations that govern us, including but not limited to Human Resources and Benefits. Take the time to explore all that CUNY has to offer that will make your professional experience easier from your very first day here.
I trust you will have a rewarding and productive experience at BCC and I look forward to seeing you on campus.
Thomas A. Isekenegbe, Ph.D.
