Message from the Provost
Dr. Augustine Okereke
Welcome to Medgar Evers College of the City University of New York. As the chief academic officer of the College, it is my privilege to work with talented and diverse faculty, administrators, and staff to meet our core mission to develop and maintain high quality, professional, career-oriented undergraduate degree programs in the context of a liberal arts education. At Medgar, we further have a mission to provide transformative educational experiences to our students and the broader community; to continue the legacy of our namesake, Medgar Wiley Evers, by promoting equal opportunity and social justice for all people.
Medgar is a place where faculty are supported and recognized for their essential contributions to our students, the college and their disciplines.
The former First Lady, Senator from New York, Secretary of State, and Democratic Party presidential nominee spoke before more than 900 graduates, elected officials, and thousands of proud families and friends. She also received an honorary Doctorate of Humane Letters, in a presentation presided over by MEC President Rudolph F. Crew and CUNY Chancellor James B. Milliken. Dozens of journalists filled the arena to capture the occasion.
We are located in the heart of Central Brooklyn, Crown Heights, where diversity is our strength. Walking distance to many historical landmarks, we are close to Prospect Park, Brooklyn Museum, Barclays Center, BAM, Brooklyn Library, Grand Army Plaza, and other attractions.
