During the 68-year history of Clinton Community College, the focus has been on the quality of education for all students. In an effort to engage more students, the college has placed a greater emphasis on activities that provide opportunities. The school’s athletic programs are being discontinued to help expand those efforts.
Work has begun to develop a campus student activity program to provide CCC students with additional activities that will keep them engaged with the college, including intramurals, additional student clubs, and community service projects. The college is currently in the early stages of planning, and information will be available soon. With the effort to engage all students in a variety of activities, CCC has announced that the college athletics programs will end following the 2014 Volleyball season.
CCC President Dr. Karen Vickers commented, “Our goal is to place a greater emphasis on activities that will provide opportunities for all our students. This decision has been difficult but is made in the best interest of our students and our college. Student athletes have worked hard and have balanced the demands of athletics and the rigors of their coursework. CCC has much for which to be proud. Our coaches have served not only as coaches to students but also as role models, teachers, advisors, and mentors.”
Through the years, CCC students have been able to participate in collegiate level men’s basketball and women’s volleyball.
