The 10 colleges that make up the San Diego and Imperial Counties Community Colleges Association (SDICCCA) are dedicated to providing the highest quality education to more than 150,000 students each year.
SDICCCA member colleges strengthen the economic and educational well-being of the communities they serve. The colleges offer career and technical education, prepare students for transfer, support life-long learning, and offer a range of educational opportunities for adult learners. Collectively, the average annual added income due to the activities of the SDICCCA member colleges and former students equals $6.1 billion dollars, or approximately 3.7 percent of the total SDICCCA service area economy.
SDICCCA is dedicated to elevating the region’s local economy. Through the Regional Consortium for Workforce Development, SDICCCA aligns workforce training for San Diego and Imperial counties to ensure training is responsive to the needs of local employers and industry.
SDICCCA also dedicates itself to promoting legislation that strengthens the mission of California community colleges. In 2014, SDICCCA supported legislation to authorize community colleges to offer specialized four-year degrees, which will allow students the opportunity to earn a bachelor’s degree at a fraction of the cost. SDICCCA was also at the forefront of the 2012 passage of Proposition 30, which raised $6 billion annually for the state and for education.
The SDICCCA Constitution describes the membership and governance of the organization.
