History

The Black Educational Access & Completion Committee (BEACC) was formed in the fall of 1968, along with the Hispanic Educational Access & Completion Committee. The work of these committees has received favorable national recognition and has served to encourage educational access to the African-American and Hispanic communities and to other under-represented groups.

Mission Statement

The mission of the Lee College Black Educational Access & Completion Committee is to encourage individuals of African descent to pursue the full range of educational opportunities available to improve their quality of life, and to use the college as a resource to further their education. This organization will focus on individuals’ strengths in order to enhance the African-American community and promote awareness of its heritage.

Meeting Time
