November 16, 2021 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm

JCAL is thrilled to present the return of JCAL Talks, a speaker series spotlighting Queens-based thought leaders in arts and culture, education and politics, and civic and community life. The series engages the diverse spectrum of thought leaders who live in, represent and originate from Queens.
The first installment of this season is Dr. Berenecea Johnson Eanes, the current President of York College. RSVP here to check out this insightful discussion in person at JCAL!

About Dr. Berenecea Johnson Eanes – Dr. Eanes has accomplished several long and short-term goals at York including: the completion of York’s Strategic Plan, establishing three main pillars to support “Undergraduates who Thrive and Graduate;” “Inclusive Signature Programs;” and a “Vibrant Community and Campus Spirit,” as a hallmark of her tenure and beyond for the next ten years; launched the One York Emergency Fund to support students during the COVID-19 Pandemic and resultant shut-down. Seeded with a $20,000 donation from the Alumni Association, the effort has now raised more than $50,000.

Prior to her position at York College, Dr. Eanes served for seven years as Vice President for Student Affairs at California State University Fullerton. Dr. Eanes earned her succession of degrees from Dillard University in New Orleans, where she majored in Public Health; Boston University, where she earned the MSW; and the Doctor of Social Work (PhD) from Clark Atlanta University.
