We have so much to celebrate: our many new students as well as those who have returned to Becker this year, the opening of our beautiful new Campus Center in Leicester, our inclusion in The Princeton Review’s The Best 377 Colleges: 2013 Edition, and many other achievements. I invite you to visit our “Points of Pride” on the website to learn more.
Becker College is a small, private college yet one with bold aspirations and one very much on the move. Becker is distinctive for its professionally focused programs, intimate living and learning environment, two unique campuses, emphasis on global citizenship, and diversity. As president, I am immensely proud of our work, and of the 1,826 students and more than 400 employees who make the College a truly remarkable educational institution.
This is an exciting and transformational time at Becker. Global Citizenship will be a major initiative this year. This fall, we joined eight other colleges and universities across the nation in the tenth cohort of the American Council on Education’s Internationalization Laboratory. The ACE Internationalization Lab is a 16-20 month process through which we will develop a global engagement strategy and establish Global Citizenship as a graduate attribute—a core outcome of a Becker College education. This will create more and exciting opportunities for students to engage in becoming Global Citizens—prepared to thrive, contribute to, and lead in a global society.
I invite you to explore our website to learn more about Becker College and the people and programs that make Becker College a great place to learn and work.
Have an exciting and productive fall semester!
Robert E. Johnson, Ph.D
President, Becker College
