About Us

Great things are happening right here at Queensborough! QCC is one of only six (6) community colleges throughout the country to be the recipient of a National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH) Challenge Grant of $500,000. This challenge has placed the Kupferberg Holocaust Resource Center and Archives (KHRCA) in a position of national leadership in incorporating the College’s humanities programs into powerful academic programs to enhance Holocaust education. Any restricted gift to the KHRCA /NEH Endowment is eligible to be matched by 50% through 2015!

Community colleges across the country are receiving national recognition for their role in helping the people of our communities survive and thrive in this economy.

This past year we welcomed back our 50th and 25th anniversary year Classes! Pictured below with some of our Alumni celebrating their anniversary is Queensborough's Vice President of Instituitional Advancement Ms. Rosemary Sullivan Zins and the President of the Alumni Association Mr. Michael S. Conigliaro, '92.  The Alumni marched in the Commencement Processional to celebrate the Anniversary of their graduation on May 29, 2015. Once again, we will give three awards to Queensborough students in the Nursing department at each of the Candlelight ceremonies and awards to students in three additional departments selected by vote at the February QCCAA meeting. Become a member and be part of the decision! Come join us this year!
