Community College Research Center

Bronze Partner
Logo Community College Research Center
The Community College Research Center (CCRC) was created in 1996 with support from the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation, and is housed at the Institute on Education and the Economy (IEE) at Teachers College, Columbia University. Since its inception, the CCRC has taken a broad and comprehensive view of community colleges in order to frame the critical questions concerning the fundamental purposes, problems, and performances of community colleges. The mission of the Community College Research Center is to carry out and promote research on major issues affecting the development, growth, and changing roles of community colleges in the United States. Since community colleges are vital to the aspirations of people and their communities, it is imperative that they become part of the mainstream research agenda. In addition to carrying out our own research, the CCRC strives to strengthen the research capacity both within the colleges and the broader community, attract new scholars to the field, promote discussion and debate about crucial and often controversial issues, and disseminate existing research.
