Events and Photos

The Annual “Seaside Splash” Fundraiser debuted in 2005 and has grown to become the premier fundraising event for the KCC Foundation. Each year, our supporters enjoy cocktails and hors d'oeuvres served on our beautiful beach patio and dinner and dancing held in the magnificent KCC Rotunda, surrounded by beautiful ocean views.  Funds raised from Seaside Splash are used to support the Foundation as it strives to advance the college’s mission of providing high quality education and continuous improvement in all areas related to student learning including faculty, instructional programs, student services, administrative and support staff, and the campus environment. 

In honor of Kingsborough's golden year, the college hosted the 50th Anniversary Gala on Wednesday, June 18th. With over 360 guests in attendance, the elegant affair brought together past presidents, current and retired faculty and staff, distinguished alumni, rising stars from our student body, as well as many friends and supporters of the college. The evening's program also included a special honorary presentation of five distinguished alumni, each of whom represented a different decade of Kingsborough's history. From the class of 1969 to the class of 2009, these distinguished alumni represented an array of professions in healthcare, law, higher education and entertainment.

Faculty Achievements Recognition Ceremony

At the annual Faculty Recognition Ceremony, Kingsborough faculty and staff are recognized for their achievements in the areas of grants received, publications and presentations, works of art or literature produced, and more.  The recent 6th annual celebration included a college-wide recognition of faculty and staff’s work and a retrospective exhibit of faculty and staff over the past 50 years. The quality of teaching and services that students at KCC receive is only as great as the quality of our faculty and staff - and as in previous years, the list of honorees told a story of achievement that could only translate into powerful outcomes for our students.
