Mission Statement
The purpose and mission of the BPCC Foundation is to host fundraising events and activities to raise monies that will assist the College in the following manner: to provide additional student scholarships, to sponsor faculty and staff professional development workshops, and to support the athletic programs.

History and Purpose
Organized on September, 24, 1997, the BPCC Foundation, Inc. was designed for the purpose and mission of engaging in educational, scientific, literal, benevolent, and charitable works exclusively for Bossier Parish Community College. Some of the initiatives undertaken by the BPCC Foundation, Inc. to support the advancement of the school include public fundraising events; direct mail appeal campaigns; corporate philanthropy focus campaigns; and the Annual Drive Campaign.

The fundamental purpose of the Foundation is to promote the educational and cultural welfare of Bossier Parish Community College, to improve the College’s facilities so as to provide broader educational advantages and opportunities, to encourage educational advancement, and to increase the College’s usefulness to the citizens of Louisiana.

BPCC Foundation Scholarships
In addition, the BPCC Foundation is dedicated to providing educational and financial resources to the students, faculty, and staff of Bossier Parish Community College. Thanks to generous grants and donations from community partners and members of BPCC's faculty and staff, each year, the Foundation allocates scholarship funds to assist students who cannot secure traditional financial aid (Pell Grants, Loans, etc.), and to those who are self-pay, yet require additional assistance closing the funding gap on tuition and fees.

Health Services

Because Bossier Parish Community College is a commuter college, it does not have an official on-campus health clinic. In addition, due to the proximity to the Bossier City Fire Department, first aid services are not offered by the College.

Promotion of prevention practices is encouraged through health-related seminars for the faculty and the staff each semester. Also, weekly campus-wide safety inspections are conducted to identify potential threats.

Though first aid supplies might be provided by an individual, it is not an activity endorsed by or sponsored by Bossier Parish Community College. In case of an emergency, contact the nearest faculty or staff member and they will contact the Campus Police and the Bossier City Fire Department.

The administration of health educational services is the responsibility of the Department of Environmental Health and Safety.


Accident insurance coverage is mandatory for all students enrolled in science lab classes or clinicals.
