GSE alumnae Carole M. Berotte Joseph
was recently appointed President of Bronx Community College (BCC). Joseph, who moved over to BCC in July from Massachusetts Bay Community College, or MassBay, is enjoying coming back to New York City, where she earned a bachelor’s from York College at the City University of New York, a master’s from Fordham University (in bilingual education) and a doctorate from New York University. Joseph became the first Haitian-American president of a U.S. college when she was selected in 2005 to lead MassBay.
“I am very happy about being back in New York,” says Joseph. “I was a student here. I was a faculty member at City [College] for more than two decades. And then I worked as an administrator at Hostos Community College in the South Bronx, so it’s a place that I know, and it’s a place that I love. It’s a place that I really understand.”
