Health Fair to be Hosted by BCC Health Ed Students on March 30 from 11 am – 1:30 pm, Atrium

19 March 2017

As we have done for the last 10 years, each semester our students work hard to design, plan, research and present a Health Fair to the entire college community.  Every aspect of the planning is done by the students, including selecting topics, researching them, creating vibrant display boards and important handouts for participants, out-reaching to community agencies and resources, and inviting vendors to table.


This service learning project is often the highlight of the semester, and our students deserve to have as many attend as possible!  You might even consider sending your students and creating an assignment for extra credit, as many of you have done in the past.


Please join me in supporting this important work and see you at the Health Fair on Thursday, March 30, from 11:00 am to 1:30 pm, in the BCC Atrium!


For more information, please contact Stephanie Sanders-Badt,, and visit the Public and Human Services website

Berkeley City College Accreditation Is Reaffirmed

27 February 2017

I am pleased to announce that accreditation for Berkeley City College has been reaffirmed.  The Accrediting Commission for Community and Junior Colleges, Western Association of Schools and Colleges, in its recent meeting determined that BCC has addressed concerns raised in an earlier review.  During a November site visit, commissioners reviewed whether the college had resolved deficiencies noted during the Spring 2015 comprehensive review.  And, in its January meeting, the commission determined that BCC meets those standards.

This is wonderful news for BCC! As president of BCC, I applaud the efforts of our faculty and staff who worked tirelessly to address the areas of concern raised by the commission.  In its letter to me, the commission acknowledges BCC for “sharing the values and the work of accreditation to ensure educational quality and to support student success.”

Rowena Tomaneng, PresidentThanks to everyone who made this possible and for helping us to continue our legacy of “Transforming Lives”.

A link to the final copy can be found on our Accreditation website.
