Who We Are
The Missouri Community College Association (MCCA) is an institutional membership organization representing Missouri’s 12 community colleges and their thousands of faculty, staff, students and administrators. MCCA provides services to its member institutions in four main areas – advocacy, education, information and networking.
Where Community Colleges Unite
Unlike in some states, Missouri's community colleges are not a “system” with a centralized administration under one governing body. Rather, our institutions are 12 separate and independent local colleges with their own governing boards. Still, there are times when statewide decisions need to be made, and that’s where the association comes in.
As a representative body, MCCA works to build and strengthen relationships with state legislators and serve as a ready resource for policymakers on questions related to higher education and workforce training. Missouri’s community college service regions cover the entire state, allowing us to serve every Missourian and every Missouri business.
