The Community College of Allegheny County provides a supportive and transformative learning environment that prepares graduates to meet critical needs in the region’s workforce.
At CCAC, we believe that life outside the classroom is an important part of your college experience. Each CCAC campus has a variety of activities to enhance your lifestyle – including athletics, cultural events and personal development seminars.
The CCAC Educational
Foundation is the fundraising and benefactor arm of the college. It seeks to
create vital connections between the college and the wider community
to ensure the ongoing viability of the college.
CCAC has long been committed to ensuring diversity and inclusion for students, staff and faculty. Preparing students to think and operate in a global arena is critical to helping promote student success and the growth of the region and nation. CCAC is committed to a collaborative and developmental strategy that seeks to embed the goals and values of diversity and inclusion into every office, department and function of the college. The core belief is that promoting diversity and inclusion is everyone’s responsibility
Central to CCAC’s efforts is the Office of Institutional Diversity & Inclusion (OIDI), which coordinates many of the college’s diversity initiatives, engages with external groups and helps to educate the college community about multiculturalism, diversity and related topics.
The college’s Tactical Plan for Diversity & Inclusion identifies nine institutional goals over a five-year period. These goals are both internal and external. They include increasing the diversity of the student body and among the faculty, staff and administration as well as building awareness of diversity collegewide. The goals also include expanding external partnerships, recognizing contributions to diversity in the community and growing the proportion of college contracts awarded to diverse firms. Clear vision and strong support reflect the college’s commitment to making the implementation of this tactical plan a collaborative and developmental process. As these goals and values become a part of every office and department across CCAC’s many campuses and centers, the college will be positioned to deliver the diverse, skilled workforce that will ensure the region’s prosperity.
