Dr. Rudy Crew

President Crew featured among 10 higher education leaders in Crain’s New York Business

Dr. Rudolph F. Crew, President of Medgar Evers College (MEC), is named one of ten People to Watch in Higher Education by Crain’s New York Business. 

Dr. Crew joins a distinguished group of presidents, deans and others featured who are leading their institutions in dynamic ways, navigating the often complex world of higher education.

President Crew took the helm at MEC in 2013 with a large and much-needed agenda, most noteworthy of which was to reverse the decline in enrollment and increase graduation rates.  Other items on his agenda include new programs in law and education, and exposing students to a wide array of jobs.  He hopes to boost enrollment by 25% during the next five years.  

“There are students at MEC that are bright, talented and capable of being producers of new ideas,” said Dr. Crew.  “They’ve got a hand to play, and the question is whether we can sustain that from elementary, middle and high school and into their college career.”

Located in Crown Heights, Brooklyn, Medgar Evers College is a growing institution offering both Associate and Baccalaureate degrees.  The nearly 7,000-member student body is primarily comprised of those who are the first in their families to attend college.
