In 1947, Baltimore City Community College originated when Baltimore Junior College was established as a two-year school. The College reformed to become the Community College of Baltimore in 1968. As the New Community College of Baltimore, it became a State institution of higher education in 1990 (Chapter 220, Acts of 1990). In 1992, the school received its present name (Chapter 208, Acts of 1992).

Baltimore City Community College offers 43 associate degree and 32 certificate programs. These cover arts and sciences, and general studies; business, information, and office technologies; allied health; biological, computer, and engineering sciences; human services; criminal justice and public safety; legal assistant; and teacher preparation. In addition to career and transfer programs, the College offers noncredit programs in basic adult literacy, Maryland General Education Development (G.E.D.) test preparation, English as a second language, and citizenship test preparation. The College also contracts with businesses, health-care providers, and government agencies to provide credit and noncredit training in health care, child care, information technology, real estate, and business.

At the Liberty campus, the Harbor campus, and over 100 off-campus sites throughout Baltimore, the College annually serves more than 11,000 students.

The College is governed by a Board of Trustees. Appointed by the Governor with Senate advice and consent, the Board consists of nine members. Eight serve six-year terms; a student member serves a one-year term. The Board of Trustees chooses the President (Code Education Article, secs. 16-501 through 16-510).
