Welcome to the Massachusetts Community College Council (MCCC), a union of the faculty, librarians, counselors, and other professionals, for the 15 community colleges of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts.
Established in 1977, the “M-triple-C” was founded when there was no state support for the educators working in our public colleges, and when, recognizing that, the Commonwealth passed legislation permitting the professionals in public higher education to form unions.
The Division of Continuing Education unit (MCCC-DCE) was formed in 1991. It includes practically all of the part-time teaching faculty in the 15 Massachusetts community colleges. A few of the part-time teaching faculty are included in the day unit. These are mostly working in clinical health-career areas.
The purpose of these pages is to
- introduce all new teaching and support professional unit members to the MCCC
