To the Guttman Community:
Yesterday, by delivering guilty verdicts in the trial of Derek Chauvin, the US judicial system fulfilled its responsibility to George Floyd, his family, our national society, and the greater human family. This jury delivered a just outcome, but the difficult work is ahead, with each person called upon to accept responsibility—and bear witness—until everyone is treated with respect and dignity. To realize the promise that is the United States, thoughtful actions, not hollow, self-congratulatory words, are necessary. Today, the thoughts of Mr. Floyd and his family are held close by the Guttman Community, but we also remember the many others who have been denied inclusion, tolerance, justice, and respect. None are forgotten.

On Monday, February 1, 2021, the CUNY Board of Trustees announced the appointment of Dr. Larry D. Johnson, Jr., as the next president of Stella and Charles Guttman Community College. His appointment will become effective on July 1, 2021. Dr. Johnson says this to the faculty and staff at Guttman about his selection: “I am honored and elated to be selected as the next President of Guttman Community College. During the interview process, it was evident that the students, faculty, staff, and community leaders are committed to the mission and vision of this innovative ecosystem within CUNY. The pandemic and social unrest have amplified the importance of public higher education. And as a College serving a diverse student body, our work is more critical than ever. I look forward to collaborating with you to ensure that Guttman remains one of the most student-centered, equity-minded, and data-informed community colleges in the nation.”
During these turbulent times, we want to remind you that we are here to support you. The news of the lack of an indictment for those responsible for the murder of Breonna Taylor hits hard and we know it can feel heavy. Remember, the Guttman community is here and ‘We Got Your Back.’
As further evidence of the College’s commitment to supporting you, I write today to share a message of support and solidarity from our President, Dr. Doris Cintrón:
Welcome to Fall 2020! Watch our messages to students and families:

There are times when words are hard to come by. I find myself unable to find words to convey a message that does not sound inadequate. Because I feel so shaken to the core, I visualize Munch’s painting “The Scream” as I think about the murder of George Floyd in Minneapolis.
