Community Colleges Council

The Community Colleges Council is a standing council appointed by the NACUBO President in consultation with the regional associations. The Council is established to ensure that issues of specific concern to community colleges are represented and addressed in the development of the association’s strategic goals and plans and in the creation of programs, products, and services for its members. The Community Colleges Council serves as an advisory body to the President and staff by providing feedback and support for the association’s goals and activities as they pertain to the constituency.
