Irwin and Concepción Federman
One of alumnus Irwin Federman’s main concerns is that Brooklyn College students should have the same opportunity he had to earn their degrees. With his wife Concepción’s encouragement, the couple is helping to give a new generation of students a chance.
Brooklyn College opens a new office that provides mentorship, counseling, advisement and more for immigrant and first-generation students and their unique challenges. The goal is to help them navigate their way to graduation.
