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.
The Community College of Allegheny County consists of four main
campuses and several centers and satellite sites. Each campus
(Allegheny, Boyce, North and South) has a Director of Safety and
Security who is also a sworn police officer as recognized by the
Office of the Governor of the State of Pennsylvania and governed by
the Office of the State Secretary of Education. These
directors are charged with all the duties and responsibilities
pertaining to campus safety and security and report to the
individual campus presidents. The safety and security of the campus
community (students, faculty, staff and visitors) is a priority
issue at CCAC.
The majority of safety and security patrol and service is
provided by a contracted guard service with on-site supervisors who
work under the auspices of the campus Director of Safety and
Security. The contracted guards are not police officers but do
serve a vital function in the safety and security of the campus
Below are links that will provide you with specific information
concerning some of the policies, services and practices of CCAC
with respect to safety and security at our campuses, centers and
sites. Additional information can be obtained from the campus
the Directors of Safety and Security, the Civil Rights Compliance Officer or the Vice President for Compliance and Legal Affairs.
