College Profile: CUNY Medgar Evers College
Medgar Evers College was founded as a result of collaborative efforts by community leaders, elected officials, the Chancellor, and the Board of Trustees of The City University of New York. The College, named for the late civil rights leader, Medgar Wiley Evers (1925-1963), was established in 1970 with a mandate to meet the educational and social needs of the Central Brooklyn community. The College is committed to the fulfillment of this mandate.
In keeping with the philosophy of The City University and Medgar Evers College, we believe that education has the power to positively transform the lives of individuals and is the right of all individuals in the pursuit of self-actualization. Consequently, the College's mission is to develop and maintain high quality, professional, career-oriented undergraduate degree programs in the context of liberal education. The College offers programs both at the baccalaureate and at the associate degree levels, giving close attention to the articulation between the two-year and the four-year programs.
The College has a commitment to students who desire self-improvement, a sound education, an opportunity to develop a personal value system, and an opportunity to gain maximum benefits from life experience and from their environment.
The College is presently located in three buildings, 1150 Carroll Street ("The Carroll Street Building"), a four-story 152,000 GSF building, 1650 Bedford Avenue ("The Bedford Building"), a three story 130,000 GSF building completed in 1988, and The School of Business and Student Support Services Building, 1637 Bedford Avenue ("The 'S' Building"), a three-story 44,950 GSF building. Constriction of Academic Complex I, the future home of its School of Science, Health, and Technology, is well underway. Upon completion, the building will be a five-story 194,000 GSF brick structure on the northern side of Crown Street, and feature computer-enabled smart classrooms, labs, and a 500 person-dining hall. The College currently maintains other administrative offices elsewhere in Brooklyn.
