The Stella and Charles Guttman Community College is the City University of New York’s newest community college in 40 years. As a very young institution, Guttman Community College (formerly The New Community College) requires flexibility and a broad range of skills and competencies from candidates in every position.
Located in midtown Manhattan, Guttman was established with the goal of significantly improving student learning, retention and graduation, by rethinking community college education and practice. The College is committed to using a range of innovative approaches in order to achieve these goals and to improve student persistence and completion.
The centerpiece of Guttman’s educational model is an integrated first-year core curriculum that builds the academic, linguistic and affective skills necessary for success in college and career. Additional features of the model include using New York City as a context for learning in and out of the classroom, the integration of academic and student support services, and the use of ePortfolios.
Guttman currently offers five majors: business administration, information technology, human services, liberal arts and sciences, and urban studies, and will offer additional programs in the future. The College admitted its first cohort of 300 students in August 2012. At full capacity, Guttman will enroll 3,000 to 5,000 students.
