Overview


Since its establishment in 1959, Broward Community College continues to strive for excellence in education. In August 1960, the doors of the Junior College of Broward County were opened to 701 students served by 28 faculty members. Classes were offered in buildings that were formerly part of the Fort Lauderdale Naval Air Station on the grounds of what is presently Fort Lauderdale/Hollywood International Airport. Now more than 40 years later, BCC remains the principal provider of undergraduate higher education. BCC attracts a diverse student body, provides a curriculum responsive to needs of the community and changes in technology, and is now one of the largest community colleges in the state and nation. Images in Broward Community College highlight the school's creation, expansion, and continued growth. Black-and-white photographs showcase the students-among them well-known graduates like Maryland's governor Parris Glendening and novelist Rita Mae Brown; the presidents who have led the college over the years; faculty and staff members; organizations; teams; and events that make BCC what it is today.
