BHC celebrates Community College Month

State of Illinois proclamation for Illinois Community College Month 2024April is designated as Community College Month. It is a time to celebrate a uniquely American institution, a place where anyone from any walk of life can become a college student.

From the beginning, Black Hawk College has been here to serve the community. The college began in 1946 as Moline Community College to accommodate World War II veterans seeking higher education.

A lot has changed in the last seven decades, but one thing has not – Black Hawk College is still here, adapting and evolving to continue serving the needs of the community.

Black Hawk College offers opportunities for:

  • High school students to earn college-credit while still in high school.
  • Recent grads as well as adult learners to get an education and quickly enter the workforce.
  • Businesses to hire local employees with specialized skills and training.
  • Immigrants to learn English and become part of their new community.

Join us this month in celebrating Black Hawk College! Among the events are a blood drive, the Health Care Career Fair, three open houses (agriculture, equine and ag mechanics/auto repair/welding), a yoga class and two solar eclipse watch parties. See a full list of April events.
