President's Welcome

As President of Briarcliffe College, I consider it an honor to serve our diverse student population and my responsibility to respond to the needs of our community.

For more than 40 years, Briarcliffe College has woven itself into the fabric of the Long Island City community of Queens with quality education and a student-first approach to career preparation. Our hands-on strategy for helping students acquire the knowledge, skills and confidence they need to pursue careers in their chosen fields is practiced by:

  • Outstanding faculty members who are practicing professionals in their respective fields, enabling them to bring insightful, career-relevant knowledge and expertise into their classrooms.
  • Experienced Financial Aid Advisors who are committed to helping students identify and pursue the best options for helping to pay for their education.
  • Administration and staff members whose objective is to ensure every Briarcliffe student is welcomed into our supportive academic, extracurricular, athletic and social communities.
  • A growing alumni population that can provide contacts and connections in many of today's relevant areas of the job market.

Briarcliffe College is the smart choice for Queens area students who know they have what it takes to go far in life, but whose comfort level remains close to home. We go farther to support each student's individual dreams and goals than would be possible at a bigger, more impersonal school.

As a student at Briarcliffe, you can expect focused interactions with faculty, administrators, classmates, mentors and peers; a community of collaboration that can lead to a lifetime of personal and professional satisfaction and the pursuit of your life's goals.

We also understand that a complete college experience encompasses more than quality academics and mentoring, so we offer everything from team athletics to organized social activities. At Briarcliffe, as in life, the further you stretch, the farther you can reach.

All of these factors combined make Briarcliffe Queens Center, far and away, an extraordinary place to find your way in the world, and I sincerely look forward to seeing you in the hallways.

Welcome to Briarcliffe College.
