The Colorado Community College System (CCCS) is the statewide pathway to individual achievement and economic vitality. Our system encompasses the collegiate sites on this map. We provide an accessible, responsive learning environment that facilitates the achievement of educational, professional and personal goals by our students and other members of our communities, and we foster an atmosphere that embraces academic excellence, diversity and innovation.
The Colorado Community College System office is located in the northeast quadrant of what was formerly Lowry Air Force Base, now known as Lowry Campus, about six miles southeast of downtown Denver. In 1993 the State Board for Community Colleges and Occupational Education (SBCCOE), which governs CCCS, was deeded 153 acres and 1 million square feet of building space at Lowry, and CCCS moved its headquarters and IT offices there in 2002. Some academic programs are also offered at Lowry Campus, including:
- CCA Solar Energy Program
- Police Academy
- Film & Video
- Computer and Science Programs
- CCA and CCD Health Sciences Programs
- CCD Dental Clinic, which serves more than 600 patients annually
Plans for campus development include creation of large green space in the middle of campus and ongoing renovation of additional buildings for academic and administrative uses.
