CCNY Administration President – Lisa S. Coico Dr. Lisa S. Coico is the 12th President of The City College of New York and the first City University of New York graduate to lead City College. Since joining City College in 2010, Dr. Coico has overseen a resurgence in academic excellence, student engagement and faculty enhancement for the benefit of its diverse student population. Through a comprehensive program emanating from her vast experience and embracing the input of students, staff, faculty, alumni, community leaders, and others, President Coico has significantly upgraded the quality of the academic experience and student life as a whole at City College. Major research projects throughout the STEM areas have been nurtured and increased academic emphasis on the extensive undergraduate and graduate offerings in liberal arts have attracted an increasingly high quality of students and faculty alike. Vice President for Student Affairs ‐ Juana Reina Juana Reina's work is distinguished by more than 30 years of experience as a senior student affairs officer in various higher education sectors including allied health, four‐year public and private colleges, community colleges and the ivy leagues. Her work is informed by over 25 years of service to the Middle States Commission on Higher Education, where she is an accreditation evaluator for all aspects of student affairs at both two and four year institutions. At City College, Vice President Reina has reorganized the Division of Student Affairs and has worked with talented colleagues and students to create programs aimed at fostering the professional development of the whole student, providing holistic support for student wellbeing in challenging times, and at increasing engagement among students, their families, staff and faculty. The work of the Division is based on a commitment to the idea that experiences outside the classroom are valuable opportunities for learning, personal and professional growth that can aid retention and foster academic success. Athletic Director ‐ Jackee Meadow As the Athletic Director at City College, Meadow has instituted a “One Team, One Dream” mantra, which quickly became a philosophy amongst the 250+ student‐athletes across 17 athletics teams. Her dedication to teaching teamwork, camaraderie, and life‐skills has resulted in her creation of several successful support services at City College including an extremely successful “Bounce‐Back” Retention Program and “G.A.M.E.S.” (Giving Athletes Motivation through Educational Services) workshops. Under her guidance the Student Athletic Advisory Committee at CCNY has begun to flourish, bringing about many exciting and instrumental changes to the City College campus and community. Meadow’s goal of “developing the student‐athlete as a total person, enhancing their well‐being and empowering them to be leaders in life”, is reflected in the Coaches and Captains Retreats that she started in 2009. The athletic facilities on campus have also seen improvement under Meadow, with newly renovated locker rooms and a new hardwood floor that has become the home of the CUNYAC / Con‐Ed Basketball Championships.
