Pitkin Education Center


The Winifred M. and George P. Pitkin Foundation donated $1 million in the name of Drs. Winifred and George Pitkin, pioneers in the field of anesthesia, to expand the training of science and health care professionals attending Bergen Community College. In recognition of this significant contribution, the largest gift in BCC history in 2005, the college’s main academic building was renamed the Pitkin Education Center. This “megastructure” houses the Science and Business wings as well as the Library, the Student  Center, the gymnasium, pool and the Administrative wing of the college campus.
