After nearly 10 years at the president of Queensborough Community College (QCC), Dr. Eduardo Martí will move on to a new role as the Vice Chancellor for Community Colleges.
Martí was recommended for this new City University of New York (CUNY) position by Chancellor Matthew Goldstein. CUNY’s Board of Trustees unanimously approved his appointment.
“Vice Chancellor Martí brings to the new position a quarter of a century of exemplary leadership at a time when the national administration is focused on the expansion of community college education and CUNY is in the forefront of community college reform,” Goldstein said. “The Vice Chancellor will work with the leadership of our six community colleges and the proposed new community college to maximize innovative collaborations and opportunities for success.”
Martí first became president of QCC on July 1, 2000. He is also a former president of Corning Community College and Tompkins Community College, both of which are part of the State University of New York.
In Connecticut, Martí previously was the acting president of Middlesex Community College and executive dean of Tunxis Community College.
“As someone who witnessed the empowerment of so many through the establishment of financial aid as Title IV of the Higher Education Act of 1965, as someone who has witnessed the growth and maturing of our sector of higher education, as someone who is proud of being part of the educational renaissance of CUNY, I am delighted and honored to serve on Chancellor Goldstein’s team at this important time for the CUNY community colleges,” Martí said.
Dr. Diane Bova Call has been appointed interim president of QCC, where she was previously the provost and senior vice president for academic affairs.
