Mission Statement

The Department of Academic Literacy at Queensborough Community College offers reading and writing courses to native and non-native-English- speaking students who require linguistic instruction to qualify for most credit-bearing courses at the College. The Department is committed to providing students with a range of multi-level courses, programs and support services to maximize their success in the Department’s exit examinations and in all their future academic work. Our mission is to empower students to develop the language proficiency, critical thinking skills and intellectual engagement necessary to realize their educational and professional aspirations.
