  • "As one of the very few women physicists when I was young, I fought hard to enter and to stay in the field. Little did I dream that I would become President of the American Physical Society (in 2003), leading and shaping policy for the society and traveling throughout the world to represent American physics, or that I would win this incredibly prestigious prize now. The message to my young colleagues is that, with strong commitment and hard work, they too can exceed their own expectations." Proud congratulations to CCNY Distinguished Prof Emerita Myriam P. Sarachik, recipient of the 2020 American Physical Society Medal for Exceptional Achievement in Research! The medal, given for contributions of the highest level that advance our knowledge and understanding of the physical universe in all its facets, recognizes Prof Sarachik's "fundamental contributions to the physics of electronic transport in solids and molecular magnetism."

  • In a statement today, President Vincent Boudreau marked with sadness the passing of Donald K. Jordan, who for 32 years led the City College Alumni Association until his retirement. "As the Association’s Executive Vice President," President Boudreau wrote, "Don truly lived for CCNY and the CCNY Alumni Association.... As an institution, we owe Don a great debt of gratitude. He was--in the words of the song he sang so often--a sturdy son of City College, and we will surely miss him."

  • Nine years after founding City College, Townsend Harris set sail for Japan on an important new mission: "This year marks 163 years since Harris arrived in Shimoda, Japan, on August 21, 1856, to open the first American consulate," notes CCNY Archivist Prof. Sydney Van Nort. "As first consul general there, he negotiated the treaty that is credited with opening the Japanese Empire to foreign trade and culture. Owing to his goodwill, openness and honesty, Harris quickly gained the respect and affection of the Japanese people."
    Today CCNY welcomed Mayor Yusuke Fukui of Shimoda and other visitors and students from Japan as well as representatives of the Harris family, according to an annual custom. Tribute was paid to Harris in an exhibit of his papers and memorabilia in the CCNY Archives and Special Collections and in a historical presentation by Prof. Van Nort. Visitors also participated in a tour of Shepard Hall statuary and the Great Hall led by restoration architect Carl Stein. https://www.ccny.cuny.edu/news/shimoda-mayor-continues-japan%E2%80%99s-reverence-ccny-founder-townsend-harris
