Established on September 21, 2011, with Governor Andrew M. Cuomo’s approval of a Master Plan Amendment, the New Community College at CUNY was the university’s first new community college in more than four years. After four years of planning, the college formally opened its doors to its first class on August 20, 2012, and on June 18, 2013, it was renamed Stella and Charles Guttman Community College in honor of the $15 million endowment gift to the College from the Stella and Charles Guttman Foundation. The second community college in Manhattan, Guttman was inspired by Chancellor Matthew Goldstein’s interest in improving graduation rates for CUNY’s diverse urban students with a wide range of linguistic and cultural backgrounds.
