50th Anniversary

As students, faculty, and staff return to the Kingsborough campus this fall, they do so at a particularly significant moment in our history: the College's 50th Anniversary! As we approach this milestone, we reflect on just how far we've come, from our founding in 1963 to being named one of the top four community colleges in the nation by the Aspen Institute. We hope that you share our pride for Kingsborough Community College, and that you will join us this year as we look fondly back on the past, celebrate the present, and work towards an even brighter future.

This promises to be a very special year at Kingsborough, so I encourage you to check our event calendar regularly for updates on events, activities, and opportunities relating to the 50th Anniversary Celebration. I also encourage you to explore the myriad features and resources on this page. You can take an-depth tour of Kingsborough's history; read testimonials from students, alumni, faculty and staff; share your own stories; and learn more about our 50th Anniversary Campaign.

Whether you are a student or an alum, faculty or retiree, staff member or donor, you have played a critical role in making Kingsborough the outstanding institution it is today. Join us this year as we celebrate 50 amazing years as Brooklyn's only community college and a beacon of academic excellence.
