Brazosport College was recently selected to participate in a national initiative on civic learning and democratic engagement.

With the selection, BC was one of nearly 100 colleges and universities in the nation chosen as a Lead Institution by NASPA — Student Affairs Administrators in Higher Education, the leading voice for the student affairs profession.

As a participating institution in NASPA’s initiative, Brazosport College will continue to encourage students’ civic development through thoughtful community partnerships, engaging leadership opportunities and democratic participation. 

“Brazosport College is pleased to be selected to participate in NASPA’s network of institutions dedicated to developing students’ sense of civic identity as civic engagement is a core value of higher education,” said Lynda Villanueva, Vice President, Brazosport College Academic and Student Affairs. “Being recognized as a national leader in this field is a reflection of quality of our current efforts and also our ongoing commitment to inspiring students to challenge themselves through leadership and service roles moving forward.”

Brazosport College is an Aspen National Top 10 school and an Achieving the Dream Leader College. BC has an active student body and participation is encouraged. The BC Student Government Association was named the best in Texas in 2014 by the Texas Junior College Student Government Association.
