Academics

Welcome to Guttman Community College and your pathway to academic and student success. Here you will find information on academic programs, campus and university services, career development, student engagement programs, and faculty resources that support student and faculty success.

The title of “Provost” has a variety of historical and linguistic roots, but in essence, the Provost is the Chief Academic Officer, reporting to and acting as an extension of president. As the Vice President for Academic Affairs and Provost, I oversee the work of deans of Academics Affairs and Student Engagement, as well as faculty coordinators of all academic programs and student support services. I work with the Senior Administrators of the college every day to ensure that we meet the needs of our faculty and students. Finally, I coordinate with Provosts from other colleges within The City University of New York (CUNY) to ensure that the university meets its goals and fulfills its mission.

The Offices of Academic Affairs (OAA) and Student Engagement will continue to update the resources available on these webpages as needed.  However, our team can be reached, if you have inquiries, comments or suggestions at provost@guttman.cuny.edu.

Once again, welcome and I thank you for your commitment to education and interest in Guttman Community College.

Howard Wach
Vice President for Academic Affairs and Provost

    Guttman Instructor of Science and Ph.D candidate in the Earth and Environmental Science program at the CUNY Graduate Center Derek Tesser is no stranger to the elements of nature. For his dissertation, he is investigating “from an airborne perspective” and working to validate the operational hydrology models of New York City’s water supply – the vast system of reservoirs and aquifers that provides water for half of New York State’s population.
