An architectural rendering for BMCC's Virtual Library.
- BMCC's more than 50 partnerships with major local employers include on-site Business Management programs at Salomon Smith Barney and the New York office of the IRS.
- Bringing disadvantaged, women, and minority students into the employment stream are such College programs as Science and Technology Entry Program (STEP), which serves 170 students each year, and the Liberty Partnership Program, which now serves 180 enrollees in three alternative schools for young mothers.
- The BMCC Employment Center placed more than 400 recipients of public assistance in jobs earning a minimum of $7 an hour; more than 50% of these students were first-time employees. Seventy percent of BMCC graduates are employed six months after completing their programs; 95% take jobs within the five boroughs.
- Over the last three years, the College's Vocational Training Program has trained 300 mature workers as teachers for day care center positions in all five boroughs, 150 disadvantaged students for Direct Care work with the disabled, and 100 disadvantaged students for emergency medical technician positions.
- A 400-seat Virtual Library in Fiterman Hall (which was itself the largest private capital gift ever to a community college) is funded by such industry giants as Bell Atlantic, Travelers Group, and Citicorp and will be used by students and the local business community.
- BMCC was the only college in the northeast to receive a Microsoft Information Technology Training Grant. This is for a consortium with the New York Information and Technology Center and IBM to develop a degree program in Multimedia Programming, Design, and Production, a fast-growing field in New York City.
- The BMCC Media Center, a state-of-the-art production and post-production complex, prepares students for a variety of television, film, and other media professions in New York.
