For the past two years John Mogulescu, senior University dean for academic affairs and dean of the School of Professional Studies, has been in charge of developing a new, seventh community college for CUNY -- one that will hopefully see more students succeed. "It is our intention to see if we do things differently, that we can increase the graduation rates," said Dean Mogulescu of the new college. "At the end of the first year, they will not only get a certain amount of credits, but they will be better prepared." He discussed plans for the college, to open by summer 2012, including its innovative approach to retaining students through comprehensive academic summer programs and an intensive first-year, full-time curriculum. "We understand how complicated our students' lives are, but .... if we can provide a meaningful education experience for them, they will step up and meet the challenge of hard work."
