What We Do

The Council of Chief Academic Officers (CCAO) meets monthly to discuss academic issues emerging across the system. CCAO is central to the proposal of new programs and the relevant program actions reported annually to the BOR. CCAO works on areas of system-wide articulation to enhance student success.
