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 Campus Cupboard, located on the third floor of G Building, is a unique service at CCAC South that provides free groceries to eligible students. It was created in partnership with the Greater Pittsburgh Community Food Bank to address the growing nationwide concern of food insecurity among college students. Shoppers have the opportunity to pick up free groceries from a selection of nonperishable food items, as well as produce and meat. Each household receives at least three days’ worth of food during each visit. CCAC South is dedicated to the success of our students and helping them eliminate barriers to achieving their goals. Free groceries allow students in need to save their money for books and other living expenses.
