A Message from the Office of the Provost

Welcome to the Community College of Denver! 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 80 certificate and degree programs in a wide variety of fields and disciplines. We have General Advisors you can work with if you are not sure which program is best, and Program Advisors you can work with once you know which program you want to pursue.

As you move towards completion of your program, we have many support services to assist you, including orientation sessions, tutoring, supplemental instruction, financial aid advising, financial literacy workshops, accommodation services, veteran support and transfer guidance. Our 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!
