President's Message

Dear York College Community:

It is my pleasure to announce the appointment of Ronald C. Thomas as Vice President for Administration/Chief Operating Officer of York College, effective November 6, 2012. Vice President Thomas had served as Acting Vice President for Administration and Finance/COO for the past 18 months, during which time he continued to improve the development, implementation and direction of the administrative and financial policies of the College.

He has been an integral member of the York College administration for more than twenty years, having served as the Dean of Administrative Affairs and the Director of Adult and Continuing Education. VP Thomas received a Bachelor's degree in Economics from Fordham University and a Masters degree in Economics from the New School for Social Research. Vice President Thomas emerged clearly as the strongest candidate for the position at the end of a national search.

We are confident that he will continue to provide the leadership and guidance necessary to advance the mission of York's Division of Administrative Affairs and the entire College Community. His leadership during the Hurricane Sandy crisis was yet another example of his extraordinary skills and dedication.

Please join me in congratulating Vice President Thomas on this well-deserved new role.


Marcia V. Keizs
