Ursula C. Schwerin (right) is pictured in graduation regalia at a commencement ceremony for the New York City Technical College. The date of the ceremony is unknown. Ursula C. Schwerin, a former City Tech student, was president of the College from 1978-1988. She was the first woman to be president of a community college in the CUNY system along with the first woman to be president of a technical college in the U.S. Under Schwerin's tenure, the College made the transition from a two-year to a four-year senior college. and the school was thus renamed New York City Technical College.
