During AY 2022-2023, the Office of the President launched the Transparency Series, an annual professional development initiative dedicated to advancing Queensborough's Strategic Plan commitment to create a Culture of Care. The series aims to increase transparency regarding college processes and systems, and provide opportunities for faculty and staff to access resources and develop skill sets.
Through these offerings, Queensborough is working to operationalize the four Strategic Plan goals included under Culture of Care.
