Recent Communications from Dr. Christine Mangino, President

July 22, 2021

Dear Colleagues:

Please join me and faculty and staff volunteers as our Queensborough Cares Food Pantry distributes groceries to students on Monday, July 26 from 1-3 PM in the main parking lot outside of the Administration Building. Whether you plan to be on campus or you are able to just stop by, it will be great to have your support, see you, say hello, and catch up with students.

Queensborough’s Pantry is crucial to the well-being of our community and students who are food insecure. Nearly one in five CUNY students reported that not having enough to eat interfered with their academic progress. More than 100 students benefit each month from Queensborough’s Pantry thanks to the Committee on Food Security and the generous support of faculty and staff, donors, and volunteers.

On behalf of our students and their families, thank you for providing food, and hope, to so many people. For more information about Monday’s distribution, or to volunteer or donate to the program, please contact Ronni Weprin in the Office of Institutional Advancement at wreprin@qcc.cuny.edu

Thank you,


Dr. Christine Mangino

The Cabinet

The CUNY Board of Trustees mandates that each College in the City University of New York have a Governance Plan and Governance Body with mixed constituencies. Such bodies will deal with policy matters for the college and for the University. Queensborough has its own Governance Plan. That plan creates the Academic Senate as the local governing body and it has its own Bylaws of the Academic Senate and there are also the Bylaws of the Faculty, both of which need to be consistent with the QCC Governance Plan. The Senate and faculty have authority to alter their bylaws. Only the CUNY BOT may alter the Governance Plan upon request from the College being formally submitted from at least two of the following constituencies: the President, the Faculty or the Students supported by formal referenda.

The Strategic Plan

Strategic Blueprint Plan abstract image

The strategic planning process, which is a college-wide effort, produces two kinds of documents: the annual strategic plan or "goals and targets" and the annual "goals and targets report" or completion report. Strategic planning at the college is a process that produces an annual strategic plan based on the strategic priorities of the college and an annual completion report that demonstrates the degree to which the institution has met its goals and objectives for the year.

The process is informed by the input from academic departments, college divisions, HEO and student feedback, and year-long consultation with the College Advisory Planning Committee (CAPC), which comprises the senior leadership of the college, the faculty, and the students.
