CCBC’s Institutional Priorities
Projects relative to Student Success, Teaching and Learning Excellence, Organizational Excellence, and Community Engagement help us to focus on CCBC’s vision to be the institution of choice for students. Our goal is to facilitate collaborative partnerships between the students, faculty, administrators, and other constituents that make teaching purposeful, learning powerful, and community paramount. This enables us to ensure that the college’s adopted five values that serve as its compass points and steer the college on its strategic path: learning, responsibility, integrity, inclusiveness, and excellence.
At CCBC, we believe that individual student success is our collective success. Our leaders seek to guide students to develop realistic and challenging goals. Together, we work to provide appropriate student support services to assist them in achieving their goals, whether those goals lead to earning a degree or certificate, obtaining transfer credits, developing specific skills, or enriching their personal lives.

Faculty training and curriculum development to ensure student success;
Targeted program scholarships; and
Software that tracks student achievement, and maps student career processes.
