Brooklyn College’s Enrollment Continues to Drop

BROOKLYN COLLEGE–Total enrollment of students continues to drop at Brooklyn College and other CUNY colleges. This fall term, Brooklyn College has an 11% decrease in total enrollment from fall 2021, with those pursuing an undergraduate degree falling by about 14% and total graduate degree-seekers decreasing by about 3%. The enrollment decline is backdropped by COVID challenges in recruitment and retention of students. 

“We have a problem, but we can’t be fixated on the problem per say. And what I mean by that is, if we’re not doing anything about it, for sure we’ll probably have problems,” said Louis Di Meglio, president of the Graduate Student Organization. “But if we try to take certain steps between now, and then we can at least see what works and what doesn’t.”
