Innovation of the Year Program

Launched in 2013-14, the Innovation of the Year Program seeks to celebrate Bergen Community College’s commitment to innovation as one of its core values.  The program provides an opportunity for all faculty, administrators and staff to showcase innovations they have designed and implemented that positively impact the education of students. The BCC Innovation of the Year Award is designed to recognize and acknowledge these members of the BCC community, their innovative programs and projects, and their commitment to excellence in education through innovation.

The winning innovation receives $750, funded by the BCC Foundation, to be used to further the innovation.  In addition, the winners are invited to submit their entry to the League of Innovation in Community Colleges for presentation at that conference or a similar conference.  If accepted, the college funds the travel and conference expenses for up to two BCC employees from the winning team to attend the conference to present.
