Message from President Farley Herzek
As our nation evolves into a more diverse and globalized society , we believe that intercultural competencies and engagement are essential skills to compete in the 21st century workforce and to become productive world citizens. This is why we have made it a top priority to develop a culturally-competent, globally-minded, and engaged student body at Kingsborough Community College.
Brooklyn, home to 2.6 million people, is fast becoming one of the most diverse urban areas in the nation and the world. Our intent is to leverage this diversity to create a center which would become a model and a resource for intercultural understanding and engagement, both city- and nation-wide. We strongly believe that this center will help us to capitalize on our extraordinary diverse student body, while supporting a truly engaged culture of inclusion, pluralism, and excellence.
We are excited to share these plans for a New Student Union & Intercultural Center (SU&IC) at Kingsborough, named one of the top four community colleges in the country in 2013. The concept paper and plan for the SU&IC was developed collaboratively by college leadership, students, faculty, and staff. All planning is complete and the project is now ready for implementation.
