Become Exceptional at BC!
It’s an exciting time to be at Bellevue College, and as the new president, I look forward to supporting students, faculty and staff in making this a successful year for all. We’re deeply committed to helping you reach your academic and career goals.
BC is impressive in so many ways. Right now we have new developments underway, from expanded program offerings to facilities that will serve our community better. Our two newest bachelor’s degrees include the Bachelor of Applied Science in Digital Marketing and Bachelor of Science in Computer Science, part of a dozen baccalaureate programs BC now offers. The first on-campus housing is under construction, and when complete will transform this campus into a 24/7 learning community.
I encourage you to take full advantage of the College’s student support services and wide array of activities and clubs. So much is available to enrich your experience here, from academic advising, personal counseling, and career exploration to cultural events, theatrical productions and leadership opportunities. Choose from over 80 student clubs and programs, join a team in our stellar athletics department or catch a game, and watch for new activities posted daily on the campus event calendar. Building relationships with faculty, staff, and other students will serve you well during your time here, and beyond.
There are wonderful spaces to study as well, including our Library Media Center, our multiple computer labs, and the Academic Success Center, where you can receive writing assistance and tutoring in math and other academic subjects.
One thing that has become quite clear to me in even my short time here is that faculty and staff care about students, and making this a safe and welcoming place for all. You will find that Bellevue College is a great place for you to strive to be exceptional.
Welcome to BC!

8/2/2017 | Last Friday, the Department of Justice filed a brief arguing that the Civil Rights Act does not protect members of the LGBTQ community from employment discrimination.
