A Message from the Provost
As our mission statement asserts, “CCD provides our diverse community an opportunity to gain quality higher education and achieve personal success in a supportive and inclusive environment.” Our vision statement is that “Every member of our community will attain the education he or she desires.” When you come to CCD, we will demonstrate these commitments to you.
We offer career exploration and counseling if you want to investigate what might be the best career option for you. And we offer over 100 certificate and degree programs in a wide variety of fields and disciplines. We have academic advisors you can work with if you are not sure which program is best, and excellent faculty and deans to work with you within your selected program.
As you move towards completion of your program, we have many support services to assist you, including orientation sessions, tutoring, financial aid advising, financial literacy workshops, accommodation services, veteran support and transfer guidance. Our CCD Foundation and alumni work hard to build scholarship support for CCD students in all areas of study. Once you get started, we will do all we can to help you complete your program.
Last, our goal is that students who complete our programs achieve our institutional outcomes. They are as follows: A CCD graduate is a complex thinker, is an effective and ethical user of technology, is an effective communicator, is globally aware, is personally responsible and is a numeric thinker. With these attributes, CCD’s graduates can do anything!
