Student Life at the Brooklyn Campus

Student Organizations

The Student Government Council hears students' concerns and advocates on behalf of the student body. Members of the SGC organize activities such as Spirit Day, blood drives, and bake sales, and also take part in new student orientations and information sessions for prospective students.

The Black Male Empowerment Network meets bi-weekly to discuss the issues that affect men and support each other in their academic journey.

The Sister to Sister Circle is for women students who seek to support each other through academic and family issues.

Campus Ministry

The Campus Ministry at the Brooklyn Campus, made up of students, faculty, and staff, seeks to provide spiritual enrichment to students seeking ways of growing in their faith tradition. Prayer meetings take place the last Tuesday of each month. Activities include hospital visits, themed workshops and film viewings, volunteer work at shelters, and providing clothes and food to the homeless during Midnight Runs.

Students can also get involved in Campus Ministry by applying for the Faith-Based Community Service Internship, a service-learning project for credit. Interns assist the Office of Campus Ministry in its work of faith development, service, and peace and justice. For more information, contact campus representative Ellen Jacobs at (718) 638-2500 or

Community Service

The Brooklyn Campus organizes community service activities, such as collecting educational items for local daycare programs.

Students can also take part in Plunge Service Trips, during which they spend Spring Break completing a week of service with people in need. Past participants have traveled to Haiti, New York City after Hurricane Sandy, Missouri, Ecuador, and New Orleans.

Career Development

The Office of Career Development, located on the Main Campus, provides support to all students and alumni in choosing and advancing their careers. Career Development helps students develop effective study and life management skills; explore their areas of interest; create a career strategy; search for jobs effectively; and plan for graduate study.
