The Bellwether College Consortium has announced its list of 30 community colleges nationwide selected as 2020 finalists for the highly coveted Bellwether Awards, and Caldwell Community College and Technical Institute is among 10 finalists for the Instructional Programs and Services category.

CCC&TI was selected for its innovative partnership with West Caldwell Health Council, Inc. to open the Hector Estepan CobraCare Clinic on the CCC&TI campus in Hudson in August 2018.

The clinic offers a wide range of services, including: physicals, preventative care, immunizations, behavioral health, minor office procedures and chronic disease management.

The Bellwether Awards are widely regarded as the nation’s most competitive and prestigious recognition for community colleges and the only award evaluated by experts and practitioners in the field.

In its 26 years of celebrating community colleges, the BCC identifies outstanding and innovative programs or practices, which can then be shared and replicated.

All finalists will be presented at the 2020 Community Colleges Futures Assembly in San Antonio, Texas and one winner will then be selected from each category by a panel of national experts.
