History / Biographical Note

Biographical / Historical

Arthur E. Carlisle served as the Vice President for Community Affairs among other titles. Known as the "troubleshooter" he represented Columbia in community outreach efforts, including working with the Morningside Area Alliance. During his tenure, he negotiated with the tenants in Morningside Drive, the proposed site for the relocation of the School of Pharmacy. He worked on the relocation of the Free School, evicted from 74-76 Morningside Drive to make room for a dormitory on East Campus. During the budget deficits of the late 1970s, he worked with Tompkins Hall Nursary School and the Columbia Greenhouse Nursery School when the University subsidies were terminated. And he represented the University's interest at Community Board meetings about the activation of the TRIGA reactor. He managed an over-200K budget spent largely on donations to community groups and programs, including a summer softball league for children in Harlem. He resigned from the University in June 1980.
