Brooklyn College of The City University of New York
is a senior college of the City University of New York. Established in 1930 by the New York City Board of Higher
Education, the College, in fact, had its beginnings as branches of Hunter
College (then a women's college) and the City
College of New York (then a men-only college). With the merger of these branches, Brooklyn College became the first public
coeducational liberal arts college in New York City.
