About the University

Medgar Evers College has the palpable energy and excitement of a school on the rise. Our Central Brooklyn campus, just steps away from the Brooklyn Botanical Garden and the Brooklyn Museum, is in the midst of the borough’s cultural and economic renaissance. Our commitment to students, families and the communities we serve, helps to drive the change that you currently witness.

At MEC, we lean into your genius, whether you never imagined yourself at college or are applying to our new Honors Program. In these times of economic and social  uncertainty, our rigorous curriculum, new degree programs and ever expanding, award-winning faculty produce global citizens who are equipped for high quality jobs.

Our students leave Medgar Evers College with a new understanding of themselves and a commitment to social justice which reflects the legacy of civil rights leader Medgar Wiley Evers. Our diverse student body is presented with opportunities and new worlds through our Center for Black Literature, the Caribbean Research Center, the Center for Law and Social Justice and The DuBois Bunche Center for Social Policy.

The college is divided into four schools:

  • School of Business
  • School of Professional and Community Development
  • School of Liberal Arts and Education
