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

  • Dr. Alia Tyner-Mullings, Associate Professor of Sociology

    Dr. Alia Tyner-Mullings

    “The thing that you always want as a professor is that moment when the students get what you’re talking about… see something and connect it to their lives, or see [something] in their lives and connect it to [what’s] happening in the classroom… When you do something in a class and the students say it was the first time they did that, or the first time they saw the point of something.”

    There is little that Associate Professor of Sociology Dr. Alia Tyner-Mullings has not done as a Guttman Founding Faculty, joining in 2011, a year before the College’s doors opened to students. Colleagues assume, she laughs, “that any committee that exists, I’m on it, which obviously is not true.” Dr. Tyner-Mullings has chaired Guttman’s chapter of the Professional Staff Congress since its inception, a position she has held through several election cycles and crucial contract negotiations. A vocal advocate for establishing the Academic Senate, she presently serves as its Vice Chair. Dr. Tyner-Mullings has collaborated to revise Guttman’s unique two-semester Ethnographies of Work (EoW) sequence and, subsequently, to create an Open Educational Resource (OER) for these courses. In addition, the acronym she coined for the Guttman Learning Outcomes that articulate educational goals and reflect the institution’s vision for our students – GLOs – has been heartily adopted.
