Free BBQ and an open house can be expected at Columbia Basin College’s upcoming celebratory luncheon, scheduled from 11 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. Sept. 23 to commemorate the long partnership between CBC and Heritage University.
The luncheon will take place in the CBC pavilion, 2600 N 20th Ave. in Pasco. The campus community and the public are invited.
CBC and Heritage became partners in 2003, when Heritage established a center on the CBC campus to provide bachelor’s degree opportunities for local residents. CBC provides the two-year associate degree. Heritage offers opportunities for bachelor’s degrees in criminal justice, K-8 education and social work, and master’s degrees in K-8 teaching, teacher leadership, pro-teach and educational administration.
