More than a decade after serving as schools chancellor, Dr. Rudy Crew is returning to the city to serve as president of Medgar Evers College.

The CUNY Board of Trustees announced the appointment, crediting him with a strong commitment to students.

Crew was chancellor under Mayor Rudolph Giuliani from 1995 through 2000 and at times clashed with the mayor.

Since then, he spent time leading the Miami and Oregon school systems.

In a statement, he said he hopes to improve achievement, especially among low-income students.
