Center for Academic Excellence

Supporting Faculty and Staff of CCCC


The mission of the Center for Academic Excellence is to develop and implement meaningful and intentional learning-centered opportunities, foster positive connections, and celebrate achievements and recognitions.

The Center for Academic Excellence addresses institutional priorities by providing quality services and support to students, the college community, and beyond in the areas of accessible course and content development, course delivery, instructional and technical support, training, and program planning, evaluation and improvement.

Distance Education resides within The Center for Academic Excellence.

Instructional Design & Technology

The Center for Academic Excellence offers instructional design and technology consultation and course development, ADA Compliance information, and an Online Teaching Community. If a Distance Education course is planned, it must be original. The instructor and supervisor must agree, prior to development, that the proposed distance education course merits compensation. Approval must also be sought from the department dean, Director of Distance Education and Instructional technology.
