Welcome! The American Association for Women in Community Colleges (AAWCC) is an organization for you—faculty, staff, administrators, and students—and it is our hope that your visit to the website today brings you back again. Since 1973, AAWCC has worked deliberately and diligently to ensure the equitable treatment and success of women in community colleges. Deeply rooted in the compelling access mission of community colleges, AAWCC champions the needs and interests of women students through scholarships, mentoring, and programming; advances the needs and interests of women working in community colleges through professional development, mentoring, and advocacy; and ensures the equitable and just treatment of women attending community colleges, working in community colleges, and visiting community colleges through advocacy, compliance, and awareness.
As you peruse the site, take a moment to review the history of this groundbreaking organization, its outstanding programs, its commitment to advocacy and programming, and its long-serving impact on the community college world. I suspect you will be moved by this work and want to be part of AAWCC—and we relish the opportunity to join with you in advancing the needs, interests, and support of women in community colleges.
