I write to let the college community know that Assistant Provost Holger Henke, has accepted a position with Kean University of New Jersey. He will be the Associate Vice President of Academic Affairs for their developing China campus.

Dr. Henke joined the York College Academic Affairs team in the fall 2008; and during his six years of service at the college, he participated in many college and university initiatives. He was the liaison to the CUNY Academic Affairs, submitting curriculum items for the Chancellor's Report and was the chair and secretary of many college-wide committees. Dr. Henke planned, organized and executed the Provost Lecture Series and Provost Distinguished Lecture Series, respectively, and served as the liaison and main Academic Affairs partner with Division of Student Development in the Foundations of Excellence effort and the launching of the Cardinal Pulse.
