President's Report for May 2023

Student Affairs and Enrollment Management

Enrollment Management Update

The Office of Academy Advisement continues to advise and register continuing students for the fall 2023 semester. They began advising new, incoming fall ‘23 students on April 10. Their efforts this semester are focused on initiatives to retain more students. All first semester students from spring 2023 have an advising hold placed on their CUNYfirst account and must meet with an Academy Adviser to register for courses. All students in that group were called and assisted to make an appointment if needed. In addition, we will conduct a text campaign for all students who have had an advising appointment but have yet to register. In addition, we hosted an event on April 19th in the atrium outside of the science building assisting students with advising questions and encouraging them to come to the office for walk-in advisement help that day. We have also collaborated on two occasions in the last month to co-host an Instagram Live with Financial Aid and Bursar.


Student Athletics Update

  • The Men's Basketball Team won the CUNYAC Championship for the first time since 2003. Additionally, men's basketball freshman Anthony Walters was selected as CUNYAC Player of the Year and Region XV Player of the Year after leading the entire country in scoring (24.9 points per game)
  • Women's Basketball freshman Nayla Walters led the entire country in rebounding (17.5 rebounds per game).

Trauma, Remembrance and Compassion 

What is trauma? What does it mean to remember? What is compassion? This year’s colloquium explores trauma, both historically and in our contemporary culture, and how remembrance and compassion both have and continue to offer meaningful responses to atrocities. If genocide and incarceration are crimes and practices that silence people and remove their humanity from them, then remembering is an act of restoration. In preserving the stories of those who have been dehumanized, we honor their suffering and affirm their humanity. In this colloquium, we explore remembrance as a social action that speaks back to the destructiveness and dehumanization of trauma. We also explore how to meaningfully engage with trauma, to hold space for and learn from past traumas. Finally, we seek to identify ways to respond to trauma through compassion, to consider how in the face of traumas, we can choose to act deliberately to alleviate suffering. Organized in dialogue with contemporary issues, the series is aligned with the current KHC exhibit, The Concentration Camps: Inside the Nazi System of Incarceration and Genocide.

Teatro Lirico D'Europa: Madama Butterfly

The most performed opera in the United States, Madama Butterfly is one of opera’s most enduring tales of unrequited love. Audiences never get tired of her, and opera companies could not survive without her. The entire opera is set from the point of view of the title character, Cio Cio San, who falls in love with American naval officer Pinkerton. Enduring both shame and sorrow, she decides to take destiny into her own hands--leading to one of the most devastating and legendary final scenes in all of opera. The drama, accompanied by Puccini’s emotionally charged musical score, portrays the dangers of misguided love, and the brave pursuit of a better life. This is a fully staged production with orchestra.

Creative Services

Teacher Appreciation Week / NYC DOE Sabbatical Campaign

NYC public school teachers can earn salary differentials by completing 30 credits of coursework beyond their bachelor’s degrees. We are working with Pati Ramos in Admissions and Dean Hartigan in CEWD on a multi-channel marketing & advertising campaign to target this population. The theme of the campaign is “Because Teachers Can’t Live on Apples Alone” and that “earning credits and certifications beyond a bachelor’s degree can boost your knowledge, your confidence and your income!” The campaign will highlight our proximity to Nassau County (quite a large number of teachers work in Queens but live across the county line) as well as the variety of course modalities offered.


Strategic Marketing Plan


A working group has been put together to begin working on our first Strategic Marketing Plan, which will help guide the work of the Department over the coming year(s). The plan will be based on a thorough market analysis, a clear understanding of the target audience, a strong positioning, and an effective marketing mix. The plan will be regularly reviewed and updated to ensure that it remains relevant and effective.



Akademos, the New Online Queensborough Bookstore


Creative Services is working with Academic Affairs, Student Affairs and IT as our bookstore is switching to a new online-only location beginning for the Fall 2023 semester. Queensborough will partner with CUNY’s exclusive online bookstore provider, Akademos, for this endeavor. Akademos currently serves 19 CUNY colleges and universities and has provided students at over 150 schools with many low-cost textbook options and significant savings through their innovative online bookstore platform which utilizes state-of-the-art technology to fully integrate with school systems. The Online Bookstore will streamline the textbook adoption process for faculty and administrators, making it easy to select course materials. For students, the new platform is designed to provide students with affordable course materials, convenience, and choice.




Update: The Office of Marketing and Communications has programmed the AI Virtual Assistant within the college's texting platform which would enable students to receive general Q&A support around the clock. A marketing plan has been finalized but we have had to push back the rollout date due to system upgrades. These positive upgrades will allow us to promote one phone number to students instead of several phone numbers.

Office of Finance and Administration

FY 23 & 24 Budget Updates

The FY 2023 Budget has continued to be a challenge for Queensborough as the University has imposed mandatory reductions for all CUNY colleges in response to the university-wide structural deficits resulting from reduced enrollment over recent years. In addition, NYC’s continuing budget challenges and the resulting Program to Eliminate the Gap (PEG) has resulted in reduced support for QCC. The rapid decline of enrollment, tuition revenue and the PEG’s have forced dramatic reductions to adjust fixed costs and staff attritions to reduce the structural deficit. With the entire QCC community working together, we have made significant progress in minimizing staff and operating costs during FY23. While we still have much work to do increasing enrollment and streamlining our cost structure, there is reason to be optimistic as we prepare for FY24. 

During May, Finance & Administration (F&A) will be distributing budget templates to all departments to allow for our resource planning for the upcoming year. We ask that all departments only request those budget items that are essential to your operations and consider ways to minimize costs wherever possible until such time that enrollment increases. F&A will continue its ongoing consultation with the Budget Advisory Committee of the Academic Senate and with the College Advisory Planning Committee as we develop our FY24 plan over the spring and summer.
