The Community Colleges Network is a Campus Compact affinity network dedicated to preparing community college students to be informed, active, and mobilized leaders in our democracy. We believe preparing students for democracy and preparing them for the workforce, careers, and continued education are mutually reinforcing.

Community colleges are central to Campus Compact’s mission of ensuring that higher education is contributing to the health and strength of our democracy. Community colleges enroll nearly half of all students and play a disproportionate role in educating students from communities that face exclusion, as well as first-generation students from all backgrounds.

Join the Community Colleges Network monthly meetings

Join colleagues from across the country to discuss topics of mutual interest, ask questions, provide feedback, and help guide Campus Compact's community college work.
