(Black Educational Access & Completion Committee)

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

TBA. Meetings are held quarterly in March, June, September, and December. Membership is free and open to anyone supporting the BEACC's endeavors.

Goals

  • To improve recruitment and retention of black students, with emphasis on disadvantaged and at-risk students and non-traditional students
  • To enhance community awareness of BEACC in our service area
  • To increase BEACC membership
