“As we worked through the challenges presented by the pandemic, we explored ways we could more effectively and efficiently serve students,” said Dr. Koffi Akakpo, BCTC president. “The fall semester offers a new beginning and the opportunity to welcome students back to campus as we implement student service improvements we learned from working remotely.”
BCTC will continue #HealthyAtBCTC practices including sanitizing, handwashing, social distancing and all other CDC protocols for lab equipment and all common areas.
