Three cheers for CUNY Kingsborough Community College, which was honored as one of the top community colleges in the nation by a nonprofit think tank on April 2.

The Aspen Institute recognized the school as one of 10 finalists for its 2019 prize for Community College Excellence for the school’s innovative support of students inside and out of the classroom, according to a rep with the organization.

“Kingsborough Community College is a national pioneer in supporting students with intensive academic and nonacademic support,” said Joshua Wyner. “As a result, it has improved graduation rates in recent years, serving as a model for other community colleges in New York and beyond.”

The $1 million award is given every other year to schools that show outstanding achievement in student success from an original pool of more than 1,000 community colleges around the country, according to the institute.

Kingsborough’s president said the recognition served as a reminder of the school’s commitment to student success and future well-being.

“This is a testament to our outstanding faculty, staff, and students,” said Dr. Claudia Schrader. “Our daily mission is to ensure the success of the students we serve and be their bridge to a bright future. Being recognized in this way reminds us that we are fulfilling our mission every day.”
