Bronx Community College will enlist private and corporate support to raise $15 million by 2015 to address six strategic priorities:
Students—Recruit, Retain, Graduate
In addition to resources for scholarships that must be made available to deserving students from diverse socioeconomic backgrounds, the College must also expand its comprehensive network of support, advisement and remediation to increase students’ odds for success.
Faculty—Recruit, Retain, Inspire
The College must continue to invest in securing and supporting its greatest asset: its faculty. They are committed to innovation in teaching and are dedicated to the needs of individual students. Resources are needed to provide opportunities for professional development both external and in-house, and release time for special projects and research.
Facilities—Restore, Maintain, Build
Implementation of BCC’s Master Plan is critical to ensuring that BCC’s 43-acre, 100-plus year old campus continues as an exemplar of preservation and innovation. The plan calls for restoration of BCC’s beloved historic buildings, expansion of teaching and learning facilities, and general campus infrastructure.
Centers—Sustain, Expand, Globalize
Several centers expand the scope of the BCC curriculum and enrich BCC. The Center for Sustainable Energy, Center for Tolerance and Understanding, Center for Teaching Excellence, and National Center for Educational Alliances provide unique resources to encourage BCC students to “think locally and act globally.” BCC must strengthen and expand the work of these centers that, by their mission, help to fashion globally aware, responsible citizens.
Community—Reach Out, Collaborate, Enrich
BCC provides educational and enrichment experiences to our community through Adult Basic Education, English as a Second Language, and GED courses, and through college prep, building trades, and continuing career education. In addition, BCC encourages community service locally, nationally, and internationally for its students and faculty.
Annual Fund—Nurture, Grow, Prosper
The BCC Green and Gold Annual Fund provides unrestricted resources to supplement tuition and tax levy revenues. Donations are used where they are most needed, including student scholarships, faculty development, student services, technology advancement, and facilities maintenance.
