Dear Friends:
We enjoyed a productive fall as the College began its fourth year.
Cultural exploration is the hallmark for Global Guttman, a new program providing opportunities for Guttman students to travel internationally and domestically while also engaging in innovative ways to “globalize” the campus. Global Guttman mirrors CUNY Chancellor Milliken’s vision of the Global CUNY initiative launched in 2014. On November 19, we held a successful study abroad fair and enjoyed an outstanding presentation from the six Guttman students who participated in the College’s first credit-bearing international program in Ecuador last summer. These students shared their amazing experiences exploring the Chocó Biodiversity Hotspot to study the relationships among diverse ecosystems, natural resources, and society in this developing economic region. During the coming year, students will have opportunities to study in Ecuador, Germany, Jamaica, Nicaragua, and Alaska. Guttman is one of the few community colleges to offer international study for students. 
In the spirit of “firsts,” we also held our first film festival to honor the achievements of Hispanic Americans as part of Hispanic Heritage Month. The College is also honored to be among the five innovative community colleges featured in the Community College Challenge series produced by WNYC’s The Takeaway. Community College Challenge will showcase the diversity of community colleges, the role they play in advancing opportunity, and the challenges they and their students face.
As the holidays approach, we have much to celebrate. Our students are engaged in rewarding civic, academic, and community projects and continue to complete their degrees in a timely manner. We wish them—and you--continued success in 2016.
Best Regards,  

Student Success
