Dear Alumni and Friends,
I am proud of the many accolades that Brooklyn College has garnered in recent months. Prestigious literary award committees have heralded our faculty and alumni. Our science faculty have gained new scientific breakthroughs in their laboratories. Last spring, the Murray Koppelman School of Business at Brooklyn College obtained accreditation from the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business, a recognition that puts us in an elite group of the top 5 percent of business schools globally. The college has also achieved important national rankings for offering the highest quality of undergraduate teaching, providing exceptional social mobility to our students, and ensuring that our students have the least debt at graduation. Finally, for the second year in a row, U.S. News & World Report ranked Brooklyn College as having the most diverse student body among regional universities in the Northeast.
These strong rankings reflect Brooklyn College’s historic and ongoing mission to educate immigrants, first-generation college students, and others who represent the diversity of this great borough. We have recently deepened our mission by launching our new Immigrant Student Success Office to coordinate needed resources for students at the college. We are extremely grateful to Irwin ’56 and Concepción Federman, whose generous support has helped make this dream a reality.
Our alumni help every day to celebrate and enhance the good news at Brooklyn College.
Michelle J. Anderson
President, Brooklyn College
