Meeting of the Minds
Springfield College President Mary-Beth Cooper recently hosted a holiday gathering at her residence on campus for the presidents of the Cooperating Colleges of Greater Springfield (CCGS). Pictured, from left, are Springfield Technical Community College President Ira Rubenzahl, Cooper, Holyoke Community College President William Messner, Elms College President Sr. Mary Reap, Westfield State University Interim President Elizabeth Preston, Bay Path University President Carol Leary, and American International College President Vincent Maniaci. Due to a prior commitment, Western New England University President Anthony Caprio was unable to attend. The CCGS, formed in 1971 by the presidents of its eight member institutions, is an educational consortium that fosters the sharing of programs, talents, and facilities in an effort to bring to the Greater Springfield area the educational resources of a university while retaining the initiative and vitality of independent institutions.
