Who We Are

We Are Award-Winning Innovators

The Bellwether College Consortium is comprised of award-winning colleges charged with addressing critical issues facing community colleges through applicable research and the promotion and replication of best practices addressing workforce development, instructional programs and services, and planning governance and finance.

The nationally recognized Bellwether Award focuses on cutting-edge, trendsetting programs worthy of replication. Annually, 30 community colleges are deemed finalists from a large group of applicants in the United States and its territories. The selected colleges compete for one of three Bellwether Awards. A rigorous selection process with two rounds of judging by peers and academicians in the field culminates with a day-long event of presentations by contenders for the Bellwether Award at the Community College Futures Assembly.

The competition and selection bring a level of excellence that demonstrates the innovative spirit and results-driven mindset that exists among our finest community colleges. BCC is proudly sponsored by the Alamo Colleges District in San Antonio, Texas, and will celebrate its 30th Bellwether Award competition in February 2024.
