LBCC Earns 2021 Champion of Higher Education Award
This is the fourth time in five years that LBCC received recognition for transfer efforts
Long Beach City College (LBCC) has been named a 2021 Champion of Higher Education for the fourth time in five years by the Campaign for College Opportunity during a virtual event today, Nov. 16.
Long Beach City College (LBCC) officials have announced the implementation of a pilot Safe Parking Program for enrolled students to reside in their vehicles overnight in a secure campus location. This pilot program is the only known program of its kind in the region at a community college.
LBCC initiated this program to address the needs of unhoused students and provide a safe place for them to park overnight.
At the annual Association of Community College Trustees (ACCT) Leadership Congress meeting last week, Long Beach Community College District (LBCCD) Board of Trustees Member Vivian Malauulu was elected to the ACCT Board of Directors. She received the largest number of votes out of all the candidates. The Director-at-Large position is a three-year term.
