The mission of the Office of Governmental Affairs and Community Relations is to enhance and promote, through continued relationship building on all levels of government and engagement within our communities, the strategic initiatives and programs of Brookdale Community College. The office serves as the primary avenue of contact with government officials, policy makers and community stakeholders.
Civic Engagement Grant Program
The Civic Engagement Grant is sponsored by the Office of Governmental Affairs and Community Relations to promote student interaction and advocacy projects and initiatives. A one-time grant is provided to a BCC Student Life & Activities recognized student organization that is engaged in activities and/or outreach projects connecting to the community, giving back and using their education to help make our world a better place. Interested? We encourage group leaders to contact the Office of Governmental Affairs and Community Relations for more information about the program and application procedure.
