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.
Applications for the
John Dziak Faculty Development & Engagement Fund are
now being accepted.
The John Dziak Faculty
Development & Engagement Fund was established to
honor the strong record of generosity and excellence in teaching.
It is designed to promote faculty innovation with the goal of
increasing student engagement. The fund annually provides four
awards of up to $500 each for faculty members, called Dziak
Fellows, to identify and test class strategies that can be used
with their colleagues to improve learning outcomes and student
engagement. Projects are to be completed within one semester.
Completed applications, with all
required information, are due to the CCAC Educational Foundation
by Monday, April 29. Any questions may be addressed to the
CCAC Educational Foundation at firstname.lastname@example.org or 412.237.6514.
The Application Review Committee
will meet to review the applications and applicants will be
notified in May. Selected applicants will be required to submit a
final report with a formal evaluation of the project and a list of
