About the League for Innovation

The League for Innovation is an international nonprofit organization with a mission to cultivate innovation in the community college environment. Starting in 1968 by B. Lamar Johnson and a dozen U.S. community and technical college presidents, the League has proudly served community college institutions for almost five decades. The Seattle College District was one of the founding member institutions.
In the last three years, four first-place awardees at the national level have been students from Seattle Colleges. You could be among them!
