Provost Quits to be Dean of Docs

Earlier this week, Maurizio Trevisan resigned his position as provost of City College, the number-two position under President Lisa Staiano Coico. This move adds to the administrative storm that began last year with word of the college’s $14 million budget crisis.

Trevisan will serve as full-time dean of the new CUNY School of Medicine at CCNY as it transforms from the Sophie Davis School of Biomedical Education into a full-fledged medical college. A physician trained in Italy, Trevisan previously held both the Sophie Davis position and provost job, which many on the faculty viewed as a conflict of interest.
