Community College of Allegheny County (CCAC)

Community College of Allegheny County

With the public launch of Imagine & Achieve: The Campaign for the Community College of Allegheny County in February 2012, CCAC formally announced the largest comprehensive campaign in its history and one of the largest campaigns ever undertaken by a community college.

The celebration did not end there. Through strong donor support since the campaign’s “quiet” phase began in June 2009, the college had reached its initial campaign goal before the public announcement was even made. Recognizing that success, the CCAC Board of Trustees, Educational Foundation Board of Directors and campaign steering committee declared an ambitious new campaign goal of $40 million—a figure that, with continued donor commitment, the Imagine & Achieve Campaign is on track to meet and exceed.

This is direct evidence of the widespread recognition of CCAC's impact on regional economic growth—and the strength of CCAC's leadership. In an increasingly competitive funding environment, the importance of pursuing all possible advancement opportunities has never been stronger. CCAC leads a growing number of organizations leveraging both public and private funding resources, a forward-looking strategy that has been embraced since the Imagine & Achieve Campaign was launched.

But the work cannot stop there. The effort to support regional success continues—and with it, the
commitment to enhancing the workforce preparation and the lives of current and future CCAC students.

From the construction of the building to the internal “green” operating systems and state-of-the-art science equipment, the K. Leroy Irvis Science Center will stand as a testament to the marvels and possibilities of science. The science and technology labs will incorporate the most advanced technology available, with five floors providing cutting-edge teaching tools and equipment to students and faculty alike.

Updated equipment such as sophisticated spectrophotometers, spectroscopes, polarimeters, osmometers, incubators, centrifuges, sterilizers and microscopes will be standard education tools used by CCAC students and instructors. At CCAC, the legacy of innovation continues.
