President’s Report


I am delighted to provide you with the annual President’s Report for St. Joseph’s College. The publication highlights the truly inspirational support we received during the 2020-2021 fiscal year.

We have included two wonderful examples of students directly impacted by your generosity. Allison Abbonizio, a senior at SJC Long Island, is pursuing her lifelong dream to become a math teacher, while SJC Brooklyn senior Kevin Anderson continues to fuel his passion for science.

Allison and Kevin are scholarship recipients fulfilling their dreams with your help. Hundreds of other SJC students benefit from endowed scholarships created and maintained through your philanthropy.

Your donations also make it possible for our campuses to continue to make the physical enhancements necessary for us to flourish as a world class institution. You have already contributed $2.6 million toward the new $17 million Student Center being constructed at SJC Long Island. Additionally, you have generously given funds that will allow us to renovate and revitalize our chapels at SJC Brooklyn.

Clearly, our alumni and friends are deeply invested in keeping the transformational character of St. Joseph’s alive. We are so grateful for your continued generosity and for your commitment to our students, faculty and staff.

Thank you for your loyalty to St. Joseph’s College.


Donald R. Boomgaarden, Ph.D.
President, St. Joseph’s College
