Our History

  • BCCC is both an old and a young institution. The College was founded in 1947 as Baltimore Junior College, a part of the Baltimore City Public Schools. Its mission was to provide post-high school education for returning World War II veterans.

    In 1967, the College was renamed Community College of Baltimore and restructured as a department of the City of Baltimore. In the 1980s, reduced resources made it difficult for the City to continue supporting the College. As a result, on July 1, 1990, the Maryland General Assembly created a new institution, New Community College of Baltimore, funded by the State of Maryland. The College was granted permanent State status in 1992 and renamed Baltimore City Community College.
