College Leadership

Interim President

Judith Gay, Ph.D.

Welcome to the 2013-14 academic year! It is a great time to be at Community College of Philadelphia, and I approach the year with enthusiasm for all that is possible. Together, we can continue to build on the College's outstanding legacy as an intellectually and culturally dynamic institution that provides access to higher education and meaningful opportunity for those who seek it.

For nearly half a century, Community College of Philadelphia has been the path to a quality education for more than 685,000 students from all walks and stages of life from our city and beyond. By any measure, the College is a vital educational and economic engine for our city and region.
