2015-2020 Strategic PlanDear Friends and Colleagues,

On Monday, October 13, Berkeley College welcomed its faculty and staff from New York, New Jersey, and Berkeley College Online® to Woodland Park, NJ, for All Associates Day. All Associates Day was an opportunity to network, learn, and have fun, as well as to share our vision for the future through a new Strategic Plan.

Berkeley College has fulfilled many of its goals over the last five years, setting a strong foundation for future success. The 2015-2020 Strategic Plan: Building on a Legacy of Excellence and Achievement, will expand on these accomplishments.

As always, our central focus for the future is serving students – from enrollment and admissions, to the classroom and graduation, and beyond. Below, you can read about the efforts of our faculty and associates at each Berkeley College location, as they seek to embody Berkeley’s mission of “empowering students to achieve lifelong success in dynamic careers.”

Enjoy this issue of Berkeley College Newsline.

Cordially,

Dario A. Cortes, PhD
President of Berkeley College

Institutional Goal 3: Accessibility and Affordability

Congresswoman Clarke, a member of the Homeland Security, Ethics, and Small Business committees, discussed the “Homeland Security Cybersecurity Boots-on-the-Ground Act,” a bill she introduced to protect the security of the Internet and the electrical grid, which was approved by the House of Representatives in July. The bill, H.R.3107, requires the Department of Homeland Security to establish classifications for workers responsible for cybersecurity.

“There is a huge, emerging profession in information technology and programming in cybersecurity. It is a new line of law enforcement,” Congresswoman Clarke said. “It is imperative that we have a very fluent cadre of professionals to protect government and the private sector, and that we look at ways to protect the nation.”

Justin Lopez, a Berkeley College student pursuing an Associate’s degree in Justice Studies – Criminal Justice, discussed his interest in a career in law enforcement.

“I never thought college would be the place for me, but now that I am here, I never want to leave,” Mr. Lopez said. “The people, the professors and the support at Berkeley is really making a difference in my life.”
