Building Strong Communities Together | One Student At A Time
We Did It! The Campaign for Bucks County Community College Raised More Than $4.2 Million
More than 50 years ago, a group of Bucks County citizens embarked on a grand educational experiment: to establish Bucks County Community College as one of Pennsylvania’s first community colleges. Since then, Bucks has provided educational opportunities to more than one million students seeking an affordable college degree or skills required for high-demand occupations. Today, the college’s combination of accessible community-based education, state-of-the-art facilities and extensive online programs empowers Bucks County citizens to pursue their higher education goals.
The next chapter of Bucks' story will be as ambitious as its first as the college embarks on a long-range plan with the following objectives:
- Become a regional asset for workforce development;
- Strengthen academic and professional programs;
- Ensure student success through enhanced support services and additional scholarship opportunities.
Achieving these objectives further highlights Bucks’ outstanding value to its students, employers, community, and public sponsors. While being prudent stewards of the public resources entrusted to Bucks, private philanthropy yields an impressive return on investment. More importantly, the impact on the community is that thousands of students every year are transformed into productive citizens.
