Broward Community College To Receive Leadership Grant

Broward Community College (BCC) is one of 10 colleges and universities in the United States recently named as a recipient of an HP Technology for Teaching Higher Education Leadership grant. The HP Award package is valued at more than $120,000.

All 10 of the grant winners were previous recipients of HP Technology for Teaching higher education grants and were invited to apply for additional investment support. BCC received its Technology for Teaching grant in 2005 and used the funds and equipment valued at $74,000 to redesign the general biology laboratory curriculum.

BCC was selected for reinvestment because of its success integrating HP technology into the classroom curriculum, demonstrating a measurable, positive impact on student achievement and proposing innovative plans to expand and sustain new approaches to teaching and learning.
