Davidson County Community College (DCCC) has been committed to the Davidson and Davie counties for over 50 years. The College’s commitment to our community and our students shine through in our vision, mission, and values. We have developed mutually respectful relationships with various community partners and individuals in the realm of business, industry and education. These partnerships provide the framework to prepare our students for citizenship in a global society. Working on the Civic Action Plan provided the opportunity to research, evaluate and improve ongoing projects and connections and to consider new efforts and initiatives.  The College’s strategic plan outlines strategies and action items in support of the five Civic Action Plan commitment statements.
