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 Contracts and Grants department works to facilitate the procurement of external funding by means of federal, state and local government grants. As the official college representative and contact in the grant procurement process, the department is a valuable source of information for faculty, staff and administrators interested in seeking outside funding. The department can assist with the following: identifying funding opportunities, grant development, contract and grant compliance and grant-related professional development.
