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. Sole also arranged a visit to a local café, where the coffee buyer spoke to the class and provided the essential context that makes coursework come alive. “When I think about that research,” published in 2017 in the Journal of Statistics Education, “I always remember my first group of students” at the College, the first of many Dr. Sole has taught in courses ranging from the Quantitative Reasoning component of City Seminar to Calculus.
