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.
In celebration of CCAC’s golden anniversary, Comcast is recording a year-long series of CCAC 50th Anniversary vignettes. Each of the five-minute vignettes features a distinguished member of the CCAC family sharing his or her reflections on CCAC and its role in shaping the lives of the people living in our region. WQED’s Tonia Caruso serves as program host, engaging each guest in a dialogue that reflects his or her unique perspective. Please click on the play buttons below to view the recordings—and check back soon, as a new one will be added each month.
