• Public Relations & Media


    The Public Relations Department oversees the college’s non-paid communications in an effort to promote CCAC and enhance the college’s image in the wider community. Encompassing both crisis communications and community promotional communications, the Public Relations team works to provide a timely response to inquiries from the media as well as provide members of the media with current information about the institution, its people, programs, events and other activities. Through its daily Press Clippings and regular Public Relations Updates, the department tracks and distributes current press activity in the media to the college community. The department also operates the email address, pr@ccac.edu where internal and external members of the community can request further information on CCAC press releases and college-related stories in the media.

    To view news articles, press releases and announcements, visit the CCAC Newsroom.

    The department offers the following services and resources to the college community:

    Interview Support: At times, media outlets will want to interview members of the CCAC community. Recognizing that this can sometimes be a stressful experience, CCAC Public Relations staff members are on hand to help individuals with these requests.
