After 16 years at Hostos Community College, including stints as provost and vice president, Dr. Christine Mangino has been appointed the new president of Queensborough Community College.
CUNY’s Board of Trustees appointed Mangino to the post effective August 17.
A first-generation college student, Dr. Mangino championed the mission of community colleges after her experience as a student at Nassau Community College.
She later earned her bachelor’s and master’s degrees in education from Hofstra University, as well as a doctoral degree in instructional leadership at St. John’s University.
In her five years as provost at Hostos, she increased three-year graduation rates by nearly 15 percent. She also boosted the number of faculty of color by six percent.
