Bronx Community College has shared two collections with Project Stand, including the archive of the BCC student newspaper, The Communicator, and also The Bronx Community College Yearbook Collection. Both collections have been digitized to provide searchable, online access.
Both collections are invaluable resources that help document significant events, happenings, and student life throughout BCC’s history, including student protest activities, with the single-most notable protest topic by volume represented in the collections being the protests about CUNY tuition increases that happened throughout the 1970s.
