Barnes & Noble College Booksellers operates nearly 700 campus bookstores nationwide, the very first of which opened at Queensborough Community College in 1968. Today, it serves almost 4.5 million students and over 250,000 faculty members in campus retail and digital learning experiences.
The company, which is a former Partner for Progress honoree, has remained a steadfast supporter of Queensborough, its students and its programs over the past decades. Its various contributions have supported the Queensborough Art Gallery, the Kupferberg Holocaust Resource Center and Archives and student scholarships. It has naming rights of both the Cinema and Film Library and the Howard and Ilene Lapidus vestibule at the Kupferberg Holocaust Resource Center and Archives. In 2006, Barnes & Noble College Booksellers made an unprecedented unrestricted gift that created enormous possibilities for expanding scholarship funds and student programs, developing new curricula and renovating campus facilities at QCC. Additionally, the company sponsors the Barnes & Noble Student Impact Team, which consists of dedicated students who volunteer their time to represent the student body at both campus and public events while learning the social and networking skills that will help them succeed in their careers.
Bill was elected to the QCC Fund Board of Directors in 2003 and subsequently elected to the Board’s Council of Advisors in 2013.
