Black Educational Access & Completion Committee

BEACC logo


The Black Educational Access & Completion Committee (BEACC) was formed in 1986, alongside the Hispanic Educational Access & Completion Committee, to encourage enrollment in higher education and the completion of degrees and certificates while preserving the Black/African-American heritage through cultural programs.

A nationally recognized volunteer organization under the leadership of Lee College, BEACC sponsors programs and events open to all high school and college students and their families to define: the enrollment and registration process, available financial assistance, and college expectations. Cultural community events are scheduled throughout the year to engage our community and promote our roots and heritage.


The mission of the Lee College Black Educational Access & Completion Committee is to encourage Lee College students to pursue the full range of educational opportunities available to improve their quality of life, and to use the college as a resource to further their education. This organization will focus on individuals' strengths in order to enhance their educational journey at Lee College.
