Dr. Anthony D. Andrews Jr. was born on December 7, 1964 in Jamaica, Queens at Jamaica Hospital, the first and only child from a relationship between Anthony Andrews Sr. and Beatrice Phyllis Mahan.  He was raised in Jamaica, Queens, and attended local public schools before graduating from York College with a B.A. degree in Political Science and Baruch College where he received an M.A. in Public Administration.

He attended York College and graduated in June 1990.  In 1994, after serving in various capacities of leadership in city government, former York College President Josephine Davis asked him to return to the college to assist her in the areas of government and community relations.  In 1998, he was appointed Assistant Director of Student Activities; and although he has served briefly in other capacities, he has continued to be a steadying influence throughout the years, serving primarily in the same capacity for which he initially hired in this department.
