I. Purpose: 

Effective communication among the Vice President for Community Colleges (VPCC) and Chancellors within the University of Hawai‘i Community College system is essential for establishing and maintaining coordinated and purposeful executive endeavors, for promoting the mutual understanding and shaping of critical systemwide issues and directions, and for developing a strong sense of system interest and cooperation which balances consistency and standards with the need for flexibility and responsiveness to campus and community needs. The role of the Council of Community College Chancellors (CCCC) is to provide a forum for communication, problem solving, consensus building and a mechanism to guide collaboratively the development of policies and operations in the UH Community College system, their respective campuses, and the University of Hawai‘i system.
