The Queensborough Community College Alumni Association, is a non-profit organization established in 1967 to raise funds from private sources to advance the educational programs at Queensborough Community College.
The Alumni Association is an exciting dynamic, civic minded organization that exists to support the students and the alumni. Our mission is: "To increase the involvement of the alumni, community and support the economic growth of the College".
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 year we welcomed back our first 50 year Class! Some marched in the Commencement Processional to celebrate the 50th Anniversary of their graduation on May 31, 2013. 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!

I made the best decision possible when I enrolled at Queensborough Community College. For me, life was no crystal ball. I enrolled into college seeking what I call “a way out for a way in.” I was struggling to support myself by working 25+ hours per week while attending school full time. Essentially, I was searching for a way out of my struggles and a way into success. Read More

"QCC gave me a great start on my education in a friendly community setting. I enjoyed my time there and continued my education at Hunter College. The Nursing program was an excellent preparation for our careers." - Anne Ghaney Boyd, Class of 1977
"QCC taught me electronics which gave me an excellent career – but the memories are what make me smile 40 years later. Good friends, portable classrooms, the hill where we played football and of course, the social impact of being in college during the war years. I treasure those days and always will." - Robert Beninati, Class of 1971
