History of Plaza College

Founded in 1916 as a private institution based in Long Island City, Plaza moved to its current Jackson Heights location in 1970. From 1975 to the present, the College has continuously made enhancements to resources in order to develop and maintain an outstanding learning environment for the students. The introduction of additional degree program offerings and the expansion of the Library, Internet Center, Learning Resources Center, and Medical Laboratory are just a few major facility enhancements. Academic support, advisement, and career placement services reach out to each student ensuring a successful educational experience. The development of computer facilities, course offerings, and a wireless network on campus, amongst other enhancements to the Plaza College community, clearly reflect Plaza’s history of responding to dramatic changes in technology and the nature of business and medical environments. The College continues to closely monitor career opportunities in New York City, evidenced by Plaza’s healthcare career programs and the College’s advancement to the baccalaureate level, providing additional opportunities for both students and alumni. To meet the challenges and opportunities of the 21st century, the College is committed to achieving strategic planning goals and building upon its strengths through the outcomes assessment process. Keeping the best part of tradition, Plaza’s student-centered focus will remain vital to ensuring the success of each graduate.
