A Few Words From Our Director

“The Black Male Initiative at Queensborough Community College is committed to increasing access to higher education and broadening the diversity of students who complete their degrees at Queensborough.”

BMI Club & Leadership

Club activities will be coordinated with Student Government and provide opportunities for leadership. For those looking to be a part of Queensborough Community College in more ways than the average student, the club scene is a great start! Many of our students who started as club officers moved upward to the Student Government Association (S.G.A.)
