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 partners with and depends on community organizations who provide services to various populations in the Pittsburgh region. Check back for updates on the list of resources compiled by the Office of Institutional Diversity & Inclusion.
In Spring 2017, CCAC hosted its first Career Exploration
Day: Women in Skilled Trades at the West Hills Center,
sponsored by the Perkins Grant and OIDI with leadership from the
Coro Fellows Program in Public Affairs. Four women's organizations

services and speak to the unique experiences and challenges women
face in the community college setting. These are valued community
partners, and more information about how to get connected with
these organizations can be found by contacting OIDI at
