Baltimore City Community College is an institution of higher education of the State of Maryland (Code Education Article, sec. 16-503).

In 1947, Baltimore City Community College originated when Baltimore Junior College was established as a two-year school to provide higher education for returning veterans of World War II. The College reformed to become the Community College of Baltimore in 1968. As the New Community College of Baltimore, it became a State institution of higher education in 1990 (Chapter 220, Acts of 1990). The school received its present name in 1992 (Chapter 208, Acts of 1992; Code Education Article, secs. 16-501 through 16-512).

Baltimore City Community College offers 43 associate degree and 32 certificate programs. These cover arts and sciences, and general studies; business, information, and office technologies; allied health; biological, computer, and engineering sciences; human services; criminal justice and public safety; legal assistant; and teacher preparation. In addition to career and transfer programs, the College offers noncredit programs in basic adult literacy, Maryland General Education Development (G.E.D.) test preparation, English as a second language, and citizenship test preparation. The College contracts with businesses, health-care providers, and government agencies to provide credit and noncredit training in health care, child care, information technology, real estate, and business.

The College centers at three main campuses: the Liberty Heights Campus; the Harbor Campus (East Lombard St.); and the Reisterstown Campus (Reisterstown Plaza Center). It also extends to over 80 off-campus sites throughout Baltimore. Annually, the College serves more than 11,000 students.


The College is governed by a Board of Trustees. Appointed by the Governor with Senate advice and consent, the Board consists of nine members. Eight serve six-year terms; a student member serves a one-year term (Code Education Article, secs. 16-504, 16-505).


Appointed by the Board of Trustees, the President of the College is responsible and accountable to the Board of Trustees for the discipline and successful conduct of the College and supervision of each of its departments (Code Education Article, sec. 16-506).

The President directs the work of the College through five main branches: Academic Affairs; Business and Finance; Human Resources; Institutional Advancement; and Student Affairs.

The Academic Affairs Branch originated as the Learning Division and reformed as the Academic Affairs Division in 2005. The Branch is responsible for three divisions: Arts and Sciences; Business and Technology; and Nursing, Allied Health, and Human Services.

The Institutional Advancement Branch consists of Development; Institutional Research and Planning; and Marketing and Publications.

The Student Affairs Branch oversees Enrollment Services; Off-Campus Student Services; Student Activities; and Student Financial Aid and Retention Services.
