The Conference on Community College Excellence…
… provides an opportunity for colleagues from regional colleges to reflect collectively on our mission as institutions of education and on our individual roles as faculty, staff, and administrators.
This conference aims to spearhead dialogues between community colleges and four-year colleges as partners, by focusing on the connections between student success and institutional capacity and service.

This Year’s focus
In Spring of 2016, the Obama Administration established the “America’s Promise” grants initiative with the goal of providing free community college for all. This year’s C3E conference reflects on this promise and how it has shaped learning and teaching at community colleges. The conference will provide a forum for research-based presentations and discussions which explore:
- Definitions of students’ success and challenges while attending community college
- The viability and potential realignment of college mission and vision statements
- How assessment has shaped the learning and teaching at community colleges
- The multifaceted issues related to academic preparation and also marketability in today’s employment environment.
