Quote from the President

“Nearly all graduates of the Community College of Allegheny County—at least 95 percent—live and work locally, providing an impact on southwestern Pennsylvania of more than $57 million in increased earnings each year. Even more significantly, a CCAC education often represents a breakthrough in economics, confidence and purpose that changes an entire family’s circumstances. I am humbled by the steadfast commitment to our students that my colleagues live out each and every day, and I am honored to be part of an institution that makes such a difference in our community.”
