The Bunker Hill Community College Learning Communities program has received the New England Board of Higher Education’s Robert J. McKenna Award for Program Achievement. The College was recognized at the Board’s 10th annual Excellence Awards celebration on March 2, 2012, at the Marriott Long Wharf hotel in Boston.
Bunker Hill Community College has installed a state-of-the art “building dashboard” in the lobby of its LEED Gold-certified Health & Wellness Center. Resembling a large flat-screen television, the device monitors the building’s energy usage in real time and presents the results in a series of colorful, interactive charts and graphs. BHCC is the only community college in Massachusetts and one of only six nationwide to have adopted this innovative technology pioneered by Lucid Technologies.
Bunker Hill Community College was honored by the state Department of Fire Services for adopting nationally recognized standards for students majoring in Fire Protection and Safety. The superintendent of the National Fire Academy presented a certificate of recognition to representatives of BHCC at a ceremony held at the Massachusetts Firefighting Academy in Stow, on March 14, 2012.
