History

The Contra Costa Community College District (CCCCD) was founded by a public vote in December 1948 and first opened its doors in 1949. It is one of the largest multi-college community college districts in California. CCCCD serves a population of 1,019,640 people, and its boundaries encompass all but 48 of the 734-square-mile (1,900 km2) land area of Contra Costa County. The District Office is located in downtown Martinez.

The Contra Costa Community College District is governed by an elected five-member Governing Board who serve four year terms. One student member, selected by student government, serves a one-year term on a rotational basis among the Colleges. The Chancellor, appointed by the Governing Board, carries out the policies of the District. For 60 years, our institutions have been a vital part of Contra Costa County. Young and old alike are encouraged to take advantage of an incomparable array of educational choices, including studies leading to an associate degree, transfer to four-year colleges and universities, short-term training to update professional skills, and specialized vocational and technical training programs—many in partnership with local businesses and industry—to help build a strong workforce in Contra Costa County.
