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

create vital connections between the college and the wider community
to ensure the ongoing viability of the college.

CCAC's AFT Faculty members are dedicated to our students. We

protecting and enhancing members' rights and working lives.
This once-a-semester general membership meeting is for

forums to see how they are addressed.
