U.S. community colleges play a vital role in educating and training the globally competitive workforce of the 21st Century. To support these efforts, the American Association of Community Colleges (AACC) promotes global awareness, intercultural understanding, and international engagement for students, faculty, staff, and administrators. AACC advocates on behalf of our member institutions with U.S. federal agencies, higher education associations, non-governmental organizations, the private sector, and international partners to raise the recognition of U.S. community colleges’ leadership role in global education. All AACC member community colleges are regionally accredited.
