A Candid Exchange With the Chancellor

Chancellor Matos Rodríguez dishes on a wide range of topics during this conversation with CUNY TV’s Tinabeth Piña for Univision. CUNY’s first Latino leader reflects on the doors that were opened for him, courtesy of his parents’ educational experiences at Puerto Rico’s public university; he discusses the relationship between CUNY and its affiliate institutions, likening the schools to siblings in a large family; he emphasizes the invaluable role that CUNY students will play in the upcoming census; and stresses the importance of connecting students with employers.
