Division of Student Affairs

A MESSAGE FROM THE VICE PRESIDENT

Welcome to the Fall 2022 semester! We are excited to see you back on campus! While we classes are online, hybrid, and in-person, Student Affairs will continue to support your educational journey at Queensborough both in-person and remotely. The Division of Student Affairs & Enrollment Management services, resources, and programs will remain available to our students via virtual platforms and through in-person appointments. Please review our website to view how we can support you. 

We encourage you to stay engaged with your faculty, advisors, classmates, and friends. Please check your QCC email and download our QCC Connect app.

We also recognize that these past couple of months have been challenging and may be overwhelming. Please note that Queensborough CARES about you! Our Counseling area is here to support, click HERE for more information. CUNY has also partnered with the CRISIS TEXT LINE to provide support for all our students. If you are struggling with any emotional or psychological concerns, you can text ‘CUNY’ to 741741 and it will initiate a free and confidential conversation with a trained volunteer.

I wish you a safe and successful fall semester!  #GoTigers

Dr. Brian R. Mitra
Vice President of Student Affairs & Enrollment Management

The office is providing services to students via e-mail, telephone, and online zoom sessions, with limited in-person services available. We recommend that you continue to work with us remotely - it's convenient and easy!

All visitors to campus are required to show proof of vaccination or a negative Covid test no more than seven days prior to coming to campus. Masks are required for in-person services.

The Division of Student Affairs supports the mission of the College to prepare students for transfer to four-year institutions and for entry into the job market by providing a network of quality student support programs and services that are culturally relevant and developmentally appropriate for our diverse, urban student body. The Division is committed to the goals of human development, a lifelong process that encompasses mastery of knowledge, cultural awareness, clarification of values, self-awareness, and refinement.

The Division is committed to student access to higher education both physical and programmatic, and to student success as measured by persistence, goal attainment, academic standing, and personal development.

The Division is concerned with all aspects of student life on campus. Its members participate in a number of services and programs designed to help students achieve academic and personal success. In addition, the Division fosters community involvement and encourages students to be aware of the value of their individual contributions to society.

The Division seeks to foster the growth of a positive sense of identity in all members of the College community and to create a campus climate that contributes to a pluralistic learning experience, celebrates diversity, combats bigotry, and promotes harmony among all people.
