Members will find valuable resources that help them implement gainful funding initiatives and increase collaboration among college boards and executives to continually grow campus wide resources that drive student success, recruitment, and retention.

By tapping into our organization’s deep well of specialized knowledge, our members have an easier time supporting the mission of their college with a strategic fiscal lens, expanding resources creatively, and providing effective oversight of all operations.

Participation in CCBO helps our members navigate and overcome their specific challenges like budget cuts, limited state funding, strict government regulations, aging infrastructures, declining enrollments, and much more.

It’s Affiliated Council members are non-profit organizations committed to advancing the role of community colleges in serving society.
