About CCHA

The Community College Humanities Association (CCHA), founded in 1979, is the only national organization of its kind for humanities faculty and administrators in two-year colleges. It is dedicated to preserving and strengthening the humanities in two-year colleges.

CCHA serves as a catalyst for defining the issues which face humanities faculty and administrators today, finding solutions to problems in the field, and establishing a communications network for humanists.

Conferences

CCHA offers National Conferences every two years, alternating with five Regional/Division Conferences every two years.

Quote of the Month

"We are not alone in worrying that instead of an informed citizenry, we are training tomorrow's consumers of Fox News, who will not swerve far from know-nothing nationalism and fearful incomprehension of foreign nations and cultures."

-Gordon Hunter and Feisal G. Mohamed, introduction to "A New Deal for the Humanities: Liberal Arts and the Future of Public Higher Education," Rutgers University Press, 2016.
