About Our Partnerships or Sponsorships

About our Community Partnerships (Sponsorship Program)

Since it opened its doors in 1960, Broward College has firmly stood by its mission, "Transforming students' lives and enriching our diverse community through academic excellence, innovation, and meaningful career opportunities." Throughout its history, the College has also established an exemplary reputation as a community partner, embedded in the belief that together we can make our county a better place through education and community service.

With many non-profit and community organizations in Broward County looking for support and partnership opportunities, Broward College is in a unique position to strategically align with organizations that share its mission. Over the years, the College has streamlined its sponsorship support to these organizations to maximize its impact in the community. Through the Social Enterprise Plan approved by the Board of Trustees in June 2022, the College seeks to partner with organizations with missions aligned to the three "Big Bets" under the plan, that is, Guarantee Access to Higher Education, Empower Student Development, and Create Impactful Career Connections. The College's vision is to work with community partners to further impact the communities in which our students, faculty, and staff live, work, and play.

Over the past 10 years, the College has had an impact of almost $12 million dollars in our community. Not only has the College awarded sponsorship dollars to non-profit and community organizations that align with our partnership guidelines. In addition, the College has provided our community with in-kind donations and served over 41,914 in the community. Broward College faculty and staff are involved in professional associations and serve on numerous boards and committees, providing 31,816 volunteer hours in fact, with an economic impact of over $848,847.

As Broward College looks toward the future, it continues to focus on the best ways to serve the needs of our community.
