It’s the dawn of a new academic year!  The KCC faculty, staff and I are excited that you have decided to join Kingsborough Community College. This is a community that, at its core, has a strong academic tradition, a culture of service and success, and an unwavering commitment to diversity, equity and inclusion.

At Kingsborough we have a motto: Dreams Begin Here. Well, guess what, you can stop dreaming because this is reality and your goals are within reach. At Kingsborough, we have all the resources you will need to be successful. Your success is our business and we take seriously our collective mission to ensure that you are well-equipped to achieve your higher education goals. The broad range of services that KCC provides is all toward creating an environment that allows you to thrive in the classroom and beyond. Take an opportunity to explore our website and you will see all the services that we have to support your success, including our Men’s Resource Center, Women’s Center, Access Resource Center (ARC) and Food Pantry. I encourage you to access and use the resources at Kingsborough — they are here for you. 

This semester, classes will be primarily online but if you have to come to campus, we are prepared to ensure your health and safety comes first. I know that it has been a difficult year for many, but 2021 is still a year of great vision and I see great things ahead for you. I see you being successful in your classes. I see you meeting your goals.  I see you achieving your dream.

Today, your dream begins. Start strong but finish stronger. I wish you a successful academic year.
