A world of opportunities awaits our students who have come, from so far and so near, to our front gate. The borough of Queens—already on the map for its dynamic business community, major league sports, cultural institutions, parks, and invigorating diversity—gains greatly from our being a college so closely allied with its educational, cultural, and economic needs. Queens College as well draws from and contributes enormously to the resources all around us. In the next quarter-century, New York City’s population is expected to expand by 1 million. The vibrancy, energy, and confidence that characterize the world’s capital would be bolstered even more by an ambitious program of capital investment and improvement at the college. Public support provides the basics at Queens College, but support from our graduates and friends ensures its excellence. It greatly advances our ability to educate students to take their place in improving America’s competitiveness and the quality of life. Our global gateway opens into this borough, this city, this nation, this world of possibilities. Photo of night skyline by Sonny Hung (Comparative Literature).
