My occupation is Educator / Nonprofit Director.
My qualifications are:
I am an educator with two decades of experience in higher education and I believe we have a responsibility to help every City College student achieve academic, career, and lifelong success.
Yet, recently, City College has faced one crisis after another: accreditation, financial, administrative, enrollment – and students are the ones who suffer.
When I came to this country at 12 years old, I spoke little English. Community college changed my life. Now, I am a Ph.D., university lecturer, decorated U.S. Army Officer, City Commissioner, and former senior administrator at the University of California.
As a place of opportunity for so many, I know that City College must not only survive, it must thrive. As your Trustee, I’ll strengthen City College for the next generation:
• Improve Student Success: help students graduate or advance their career within two years
• Support Our Community: expand FREE CITY to lower barriers to education and foster lifelong learning
• Embrace Innovation: provide students the skills and training they need for the jobs of tomorrow
I’ll put my experience to work for our students.
