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 is proud to have grown from humble yet earnest beginnings in 1966 into the nationally recognized postsecondary leader that it is today. Please celebrate with us throughout 2016 as we look back on our stories and look forward to our future and your success.
