New KCC President Promises Change

KINGSBOROUGH COMMUNITY COLLEGE–Kingsborough Community College has a legacy of excellence spanning fifty-five years. With a rank in the top four community colleges in the nation according to the Aspen Institute College Excellence Program, the south Brooklyn institution nurtures the minds of thousands of students.

The beauty of Kingsborough is that it welcomes those who want to learn with open arms. Regardless of race, gender, ethnicity, or any other status a person may hold. Unfortunately, in recent years, enrollment has been on a decline. Shrinking from sixteen thousand students to as low as eleven thousand. This drastic decrease is just one issue that Dr. Claudia V. Schrader faces since her recent appointment as President of the college. The challenge of convincing people to spend thousands of dollars a year is a daunting task. Even if it is an investment for the future.
