The College President
Christine Mangino, Ed.D., President,
Queensborough Community College
The City University of New York’s Board of Trustees unanimously appointed Christine Mangino Queensborough Community College’s sixth president, effective August 17, 2020.
Dr. Mangino is an esteemed educator, pedagogical scholar, and advocate of student-centered learning. A first-generation community college graduate, Dr. Mangino succeeds Interim President Timothy G. Lynch.
Dr. Mangino holds degrees from St. John’s and Hofstra universities, as well as Nassau Community College. She is Queensborough’s second female president.
The former Provost of CUNY’s Hostos Community College, Dr. Mangino is a recognized innovator of continuous faculty development. She redefined education-leadership instruction at Hostos by convening a unique Best Practice Taskforce, launching the acclaimed Hostos Teaching Institute, and founding the College’s prized Teaching Fellows program.
A 2019 Aspen Presidential Fellow, Dr. Mangino increased her faculty’s diversity and female representation, and collaborated with colleagues to incorporate cultural competencies within the curriculum.
In addition, she implemented a far-reaching Certificate program in the South Bronx that prepares students with intellectual and developmental disabilities for employment opportunities.
Dr. Mangino believes one of the most important factors in engendering student success is keeping everyone — teachers, students, parents and the community — connected and invested in the learning process.
Earlier in her career, Dr. Mangino taught in private and public schools in the New York area and developed Cultural Diversity courses that are widely used in the Early Childhood sector.
