The Briarcliffe College campus community is built upon and characterized by the strengths and contributions of all people and all groups of people. We are committed to achieving and sustaining a pluralistic environment that encompasses racial, cultural, and ethnic diversity. Briarcliffe College: A Brief History Briarcliffe College was founded over 40 years ago with a single goal: to meet the career-oriented higher education needs of Long Island residents in order to prepare them for success in the business world. Ever since the College s inception in 1966, our close relationship with the region s business community has been an integral part of our growth and the growth of our students. We continue to work closely with local businesses, seeking their input and utilizing their expertise to help shape our curriculum and to ensure that Briarcliffe College students receive an education specifically designed to expand their employment opportunities. In over four decades of serving Long Island, we have seen the area s population grow, particularly in the eastern part of the Island, and we have responded to that growth. In the 1980s, we established a second campus in Patchogue, providing convenient access to day and evening classes for residents throughout Suffolk County. Our expansion has seen an increase in the number of adult students who attend Briarcliffe College. To meet the unique needs of working adults, we established an academic calendar specially structured to enable students who work during the day to attend school full-time in the evenings. During the 1990s, we expanded our curriculum to provide our students with the educational tools needed to succeed in the fast-moving digital marketplace. In 1998, we drew upon the College s strengths in business and technology to create our first bachelor s degree program, a Bachelor of Business Administration (B.B.A.) degree in Information Technology. Our B.B.A. in Information Technology reflects the dominant position that technology has assumed in Long Island s economy. In 1999 we added a B.B.A. degree in Marketing and a B.B.A. degree in Management. In January 2001, we began a new Bachelor of Fine Arts (B.F.A.) degree in Graphic Design, reflecting the marriage of high technology and the visual arts. In 2002, we began offering an Associate in Applied Science (A.A.S.) degree in Accounting, followed in 200 by an Associate in Science (A.S.) degree in Criminal Justice and an Associate in Applied Science (A.A.S.) degree in Digital Photography. In 2006, the Patchogue Campus was approved to offer its first Bachelor s Degree in Business Administration Management and began offering the Bachelor s Degree in Fine Arts in the spring of In November 2007, the College received approval to open up a site in Long Island City, thereby extending opportunities to students in the borough of Queens, NY and in the spring of 2009, the College began offering its first Bachelor of Science Degree in Criminal Justice and Catalog 5

6 Section About Briarcliffe Title College added to the associate program offerings an A.A.S. degree in Paralegal Studies. Briarcliffe College currently provides educational opportunities in areas related to business and management; accounting; graphic design; criminal justice, legal and paralegal studies; dental hygiene; nursing; and allied health fields. The College s academic reach was expanded when the College s Board of Trustees approved a significant expansion of the College Mission by adding health degrees as a major institutional focus. This substantive change was approved by the Middle States Commission on Higher Education and the New York State Board of Regents in the form of a Master Plan Amendment in In October 2010, the New York State Education Department registered a program in Healthcare Administration leading to the Bachelor of Science (B.S.) degree for Briarcliffe College. In 2010, a program in Healthcare Administration leading to the B.S. degree was added to the curriculum and four new major areas of concentration were added to the program in Business Administration Management leading to the B.B.A. Those concentrations include Healthcare Management, Health Information Management, Medical Imaging Management, and Medical Practice Management. Subsequent to this program s approval, the College has also been approved to offer and has registered a Healthcare Administration program leading to the Bachelor of Professional Studies (B.P.S.) degree with three available concentrations: a) Management; b) Long Term Care; and c) Medical Imaging Management. In September 2011, the New York State Department of Education Board of Regents approved an amendment to the master plan of Briarcliffe College registering the Dental Hygiene Program leading to the Associate in Applied Science (A.A.S.) degree at the Patchogue Campus; and a Dental Hygiene Completion Program leading to the Bachelor of Professional Studies (B.P.S.) degree at the Bethpage and Patchogue campuses. In 201, the New York State Department of Education Board of Regents approved the registration of an Allied Health program leading to the AS degree; a Nursing Program leading to the B.S. degree; and programs in Advertising and Design Communications and Legal Studies. Furthermore, in 2014 the College s Board of Trustees approved a significant expansion of the College Mission by adding institutional assessment and effectiveness as a major institutional focus. The academic program offerings within the College will continue to adapt to the changing conditions of the marketplace, in efforts to prepare students in meeting these expectations. The Briarcliffe College Faculty: Sharing Real-World Knowledge As a student-centered teaching institution, Briarcliffe College believes that in order to develop successful graduates, it must attract and seek to retain the most qualified individuals and incorporate them as part of its faculty. As a result, members of the Briarcliffe College faculty have extensive practical and applied experience in the areas they teach, and many have reached high levels of professional success in those areas. Briarcliffe College, by design and mission, is a teaching institution. This teaching mission means, first and foremost, that the full resources of the school are assembled in the furtherance of student learning, the transmission by the faculty of knowledge and skills deemed useful in society at large. The graphic design faculty includes successful freelance artists from the world of advertising, publishing, animation, web design, interactive design, and graphic design. They come to the College from a multitude of industries, bringing insight, expertise, and talent to the learning process. Criminal Justice faculty members bring to the classroom experience in both public and private security, law enforcement, and corrections, along with excellence in teaching. The Accounting and Business faculty includes successful business executives, as well as entrepreneurs, accountants, marketing and management professionals, while the computer and information technology faculty includes experienced instructors with computer engineering, programming, networking, and applications experience. Paralegal Studies and Legal Studies courses are taught by experienced attorneys and paralegals who bring to the faculty significant expertise in all facets of legal practice.. The Healthcare faculty includes administrators and practitioners from across the allied health fields, bringing with them a state-of-the-art appreciation for the rapidly expanding and changing healthcare industry. Members of the Liberal Arts and Science faculty have a thorough knowledge of their individual disciplines, and help our students to develop the general education competencies they need to distinguish themselves as college graduates. Finally, the Dental Hygiene Nursing faculty bring to the College current clinical practice experience and demonstrated leadership ability in the dental sciences. While each member of the faculty has diverse skills and interests and is dedicated to his/her discipline, faculty s primary commitment is sharing their knowledge and educating students in the classroom leading to student success. Professionalism Briarcliffe College believes in providing skills-based education to our students in many different disciplines. One of the primary goals of our institution is to make available skills-based training that will provide the foundation to be successful in different professions. Another, but equally important goal is to assist each student in preparing themselves to be successful in the work environment on a personal level. To this end, Briarcliffe College expects all students, staff, and faculty to behave in a professional and appropriate manner that supports an environment that more fully simulates the workplace. Briarcliffe College believes that as part of the academic experience, all members of the College community should have the opportunity to expand their learning experiences through active participation in thoughtfully organized service activities. As part of the Briarcliffe College student experience, Service Learning is integrated into and enhances the curricula of its academic programs by bringing classroom theory into practice, fostering civic responsibility as it provides opportunities for students to engage directly in or with their 6 Briarcliffe College
