CCC Alumni Board of Directors Statement of Support

January 23, 2024

Dear CCC Alumni,

As the CCC Alumni Association Board of Directors, we understand that the recent decision to relocate CCC to the SUNY Plattsburgh campus has evoked various emotions, and we want to assure you that the next chapter of our alma mater will be bright and promising.

While we acknowledge that we will miss our beautiful campus and the outstanding view of Lake Champlain, we believe that relocating to the SUNY Plattsburgh campus is the best way to ensure the future success and sustainability of CCC. The decision to move represents a strategic and forward-thinking approach to meet the evolving needs of our students and the changing landscape of higher education. As a community college, CCC's mission is to provide open enrollment for anyone seeking a college degree. We offer affordable tuition, small class sizes, dedicated faculty and staff, and programs allowing students to complete their education in two years with job-ready skills. Our focus has always been on providing a means to an end: jobs. However, the changing landscape demands innovative solutions.

Since its inception, Clinton Community College has been a source of pride for its graduates. Your achievements, contributions, and lasting connections have played a crucial role in shaping the legacy of our beloved institution. As we embark on this new journey, we carry with us the rich history and accomplishments of the CCC alumni community.

The decision to relocate is a strategic move aimed at ensuring the continued success and longevity of CCC. While change can be accompanied by uncertainty, we believe in the resilience and adaptability that define our alma mater and its graduates. The core values that have made CCC a beacon of education and community will persist as we move forward.

The CCC Alumni Association remains steadfast in its commitment to fostering a strong network among our graduates. We encourage you to continue to engage with your alma mater by supporting and contributing to CCC. Your generosity allows us to uphold the traditions that make CCC exceptional and helps pave the way for future graduates to experience the same transformative education that shaped our lives. Together, let us pay it forward, creating a lasting impact that transcends generations.

This transition represents a new chapter, and we encourage you to embrace it with optimism and pride. As CCC alumni, your enduring spirit will undoubtedly contribute to the continued success of our alma mater. Together, we look forward to witnessing the bright and promising future that lies ahead for Clinton Community College.

With warm regards,

CCC Alumni Association Board of Directors
