BHCC stands in solidarity with the people of Ukraine and with victims of war and violence everywhere

Bunker Hill Community College | Office of the President

Dear BHCC Community,

Since last week’s Russian invasion of Ukraine, I have watched the events unfolding in Europe with concern and sorrow. Violence and war are the enemies of the values that this College and virtually every educational institution hold dear. Where education broadens our understanding of ourselves and the world, war narrows it; where education lifts a light by which we might see, violence casts only shadow. As a College, we stand in solidarity with the people of Ukraine, and with victims of war and violence everywhere.

Congresswoman Pressley Visits BHCC to Deliver $1M in Federal Funding for Boston’s Tuition-Free Community College Program

On Wednesday, May 4, 2022, Congresswoman Ayanna Pressley (MA-07) visited Bunker Hill Community College (BHCC) to celebrate the $1,000,000 in federal community project funding she secured to expand the City of Boston’s Tuition-Free Community College program. Rep. Pressley was joined by Boston Mayor Michelle Wu, BHCC President Pam Eddinger, and BHCC students for a campus tour and a press conference to highlight how the funding will help address the college affordability crisis locally as she continues her calls for President Biden to cancel student debt.

Pressley secured this federal funding for Boston in the government spending package that passed Congress and was signed into law by President Biden in March. In total, Rep. Pressley secured over $8 million for 10 community projects across the Massachusetts 7th Congressional District, capping off nearly a year of advocacy by Rep. Pressley and local leaders.
