Judith Huntington Inaugurated as First Female President of College of New Rochelle


J


udith Huntington was officially inaugurated on October 14 as the 13th


president of The College of New Rochelle at a cere-


mony held at the New Rochelle campus attended by hundreds of faculty, alumni, staff, students and leaders from the educational, business and political community. Ms. Huntington, who is the first lay woman president of the College in its 108-year history, succeeds Stephen J. Sweeny, who served as president since 1997. In her inaugural address, Ms. Huntington shared her vision


for The College of New Rochelle and outlined key initiatives the College must address to meet today’s challenging environment. “There is new skepticism about the value of a college education driven by parents and students anxiety about affordability, future employment and worries over accumulating student debt. While the economic challenges may seem daunting, they also provide the necessary impetus for us to change, adapt, and innovate. Clearly, the challenges cannot be ignored and standing still is not an option,” she said. To meet these challenges, Ms. Huntington said the College


will embark on an institution-wide strategic plan supported by a fully integrated master facility plan and financial plan to deter- mine where it will be in the years ahead. Ms. Huntington said she will stress a “student centered” approach. “We must place stu- dents at the very center of our decision making and provide them the education, resources and skills they need to become success- ful,” she said. She noted that the College must expand its academic pro- grams, diversify its revenue sources and utilize all aspects of technology to deliver education in an e-learning environment. “By doing so, the College will be better insulated from volatile market conditions. It will improve our competitive position, economies of scale and brand recognition, and broaden our geo- graphic reach,” she said. Ms. Huntington said social justice remains a prevailing theme


in educating students at The College of New Rochelle. “Central to our mission and at the core of both social justice and our Cath- olic identity is providing access to education for all those who were previously denied or prevented from pursuing a degree. We pride ourselves for the richness this diversity brings to our com- munity,” she noted. “We also pride ourselves on our continued commitment to women’s education and recognizing women’s achievements.”
