The Rural Community College Alliance was formed not only to represent rural and tribal colleges on a national level, but to encourage the sharing of information, and to assist rural and tribal two-year colleges with the challenges they encounter. As the face of higher education continues to change rapidly, it is essential more than ever before, to prepare for the challenges AND opportunities that will arise. Operating a college in a rural area IS different than operating a college in an urban or suburban area. Size, location, demographics, population served, and geography do matter and impact how we operate! RCCA works to help rural state and tribal colleges thrive and excel in these challenging times. Not only do we represent your interests at all levels of government, but most importantly, we work to tie together colleges who share the same challenges and opportunities. By sharing our challenges, solutions, curriculums and ideas we can more effectively serve our students, communities and stakeholders.
