The Community College of Baltimore County was among 10 finalists chosen by the Community College Futures Assembly as it issued its call for Legacy Award nominations. The Legacy award application criteria included only former bellwether finalist programs that are able to illustrate five years of program effectiveness.
The Legacy award is sponsored by the Association of Community College Trustees (ACCT). The call for nominations extended to more than 500 community college programs and 60 postsecondary institutions. The field of Legacy nominations was very competitive with 30 Legacy applications. All finalists will present on Jan. 25, 2014 in Orlando, Fla., and one winner will then be selected by a panel of national experts. The winners will be announced Jan. 28 at the CCFA annual meeting in Orlando.
The Community College Futures Assembly, now in its 20th year, convenes annually as an independent national policy forum for key opinion leaders to work as a think tank in identifying critical issues facing the future of community colleges, and to recognize Bellwether Finalist colleges as trend-setting institutions.
