Macaulay is pleased to host CUNY Chancellor Félix V. Matos Rodríguez and Rossana Rosado, Commissioner of the New York State Division of Criminal Justice Services for an inspiring discussion in honor of Women’s History Month.  Dean Dara Byrne, PhD will moderate.

In her role as Commissioner, Rosado leads the agency dedicated to enhancing community safety and providing resources and services. We’ll hear more from the Commissioner about her innovative work impacting CUNY’s students, faculty and staff including:

  • Advocacy for victims of gender-based violence
  • Improving trust and confidence in the justice system
  • Creating community partnerships
  • Supporting survivors

FÉLIX MATOS RODRÍGUEZ has served as the eighth Chancellor of The City University of New York (CUNY) since May 2019, focusing his tenure on championing student equity across the University system. Chancellor Matos Rodríguez, whose historic appointment makes him the first educator of color and the first Latino to lead the nation’s largest urban university, oversees a system of 25 colleges with an enrollment of over 225,000 students and an operating budget of $3.8 billion.

NCJS Commissioner Rossana Rosado

ROSSANA ROSADO is the 13th individual—the first Latina, second person of color and only the third woman—to lead the Division of Criminal Justice Service since its creation in 1972. Prior to joining the agency in November 2021, she served as New York’s Secretary of State for nearly six years. Commissioner Rosado’s state service follows a 30-year career as a media executive and award-winning producer, which included serving as the first female Editor and Publisher of El Diario La Prensa, the largest Spanish-language newspaper in the country. Her transition to DCJS culminates her personal and professional passions and presents an opportunity to deepen the impact that the agency has on the criminal justice system to ensure that it works fairly, equitably, and efficiently for all New Yorkers.
