Quote from the President

"CCC focuses on providing high quality allied health programs, such as nursing, radiologic technology, physical therapist assistant, and emergency medical services, for students in eastern New Mexico and west Texas. We train over 60% of the healthcare providers in our area, and we rely heavily on partnerships with regional healthcare facilities to enhance the quality of our programs. Our affordable tuition draws students from every state and creates a diverse community of learners who can expect instruction from a talented and committed faculty. We want our students to thrive, and we provide the tools for them to do so."

Interesting Facts

  • Clovis Community College opened in 1969 as a branch campus for Eastern New Mexico University. Our current campus opened its doors in 1980. In 1990, Clovis citizens voted to allow the college to break its ties with ENMU and go independent. Clovis Community College celebrated its 25th anniversary in September of 2015.
  • Clovis Community College is home to the Eula Mae Edwards Museum and Gallery, which features artifacts from the Blackwater Draw dig site south of Clovis, as well as a rotation of art exhibits featuring local artists and area youth.
  • CCC brings the community world-class entertainment each year with its Cultural Arts Series, featuring bands, world music, theater, opera, and comedy. In the future, entertainment will get a new home at the historic Mesa Theater in downtown Clovis, as the theater was generously donated to the college by Norman and Vi Petty. The theater was used by Norman Petty in his recording business, noted for his role in the development of Buddy Holly and other early Rock and Roll artists. The intent is to develop the facility as the Norman and Vi Petty Performing Arts Center.
