Solidarity in Numbers

United We Stand

Who we are...

Bellevue College Association
of Higher Education

BCAHE is the faculty association for Bellevue College, in Bellevue, Washington. As the legally recognized bargaining agent for all BC instructors, the faculty union represents both full-time and part-time faculty who teach either in credit programs or in the non-credit continuing education programs. Because the fundamental interests of faculty in our dealings with BC administration are common across categories, we all share in supporting that representation.
