Partnerships Guidelines

​​guidelines banner

Broward College supports a variety of nonprofit organizations with a special emphasis on those that work to achieve our goals and objectives and touch a diverse population, in particular, those that support economic development, college & career readiness, and/or employee engagement.
Due to the number of requests Broward College receives, these guidelines are meant to assist organizations in understanding the organization’s priorities.  The proposed project, program, event must focus on one of the three Priorities listed below. 
Broward College receives many more requests that it can support.  When a request is denied, it does not imply that the applicant’s program is not vital.  It may mean that the request does not fall within our guidelines or that all sponsorship funds for the year have been allocated.
​For our communities, having a college-educated and career ready workforce offers great opportunities to our county.  To compete in 21st century work environment, career literacy is vital for the next generation of college students and career-minded individuals, for they face a more demanding, more competitive and more knowledge-intensive world than ever before.
  • Opportunities that help students move from middle to high school and high school to post-secondary.
