About Us

The Community Colleges of Appalachia (CCA) is a voluntary association of public community colleges serving the common interests of member colleges and their communities through programs and services responsive to the unique cultural, geographic, and economic development challenges facing the region.

1. CCA supports the continued growth and development of member colleges.

2. CCA builds greater awareness among the general public, the higher education community, regional and national funding sources, and others of the vital contributions now being made by the community colleges of Appalachia in responding to the needs of their communities and of the potential for additional resources to expand and enhance these efforts.

3. CCA develops and implements an advancement agenda, reflecting the shared needs of member colleges. This agenda will guide the association in the development of major proposals for submission to regional and national funding sources.
