Maryland Association of Community Colleges (MACC) is an advocate for the state’s 16 community colleges and the educational needs of the almost half million students the colleges serve.

Working with elected officials, policy-makers, business groups, local, state and federal government representatives as well as other stakeholder organizations, MACC seeks to:

  • Make postsecondary education accessible to all Marylanders,
  • Grow the percentage of Marylanders who are college and career-ready,
  • Increase community college completion rates statewide, and
  • Develop recognition of the community college contribution to economic development and resiliency.

MACC has served as the unified voice for Maryland’s community colleges since its inception in 1992.
