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.

Community College Humanities Review Journal

The Community College Humanities Review (CCHR) journal, published biannually by the Community College Humanities Association (CCHA), has gone through an extensive redesign and reevaluation of editorial content. Along with the publication’s historical penchant for outstanding peer-reviewed scholarship, CCHR will now publish essays on pedagogy, faculty profiles, book reviews, columns, and first-person reflections on life as a community college humanities professor.

Conferences

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

Quote of the Month

"A further characteristic of this civilization is the impoverishment of ideas as a driving force of cultural life. Today images have primacy over ideas. For that reason, cinema, television, and now the internet have left books to one side, and, if the pessimistic predictions of the likes of George Steiner are correct, then books will soon be relegated to the catacombs."

From: Nobel Laureate Mario Vargas Llosa's essay, "The Civilization of the Spectacle," collected in Notes on the Death of Culture: Essays on Spectacle and Society.
