It appears that for most adults who have higher education training, they began their higher education either at a community college or somewhere along the line, attended one. California’s Community Colleges are the largest higher education system in the world. There are 72 districts, 112 colleges, and 2.8 million students who are attending one of our colleges at this time. Our colleges serve 73 percent of all students enrolled in California higher education. Approximately 24% of all the community college students nationwide are enrolled in a California community college. Two-thirds of all CSU graduates and over one-third of UC graduates began their college training at a community college or transferred from a community college.
The Higher Education Service Center does not have regular meetings like the regional Service Centers. It oversees the election of delegates to CTA State Council and the NEA Representative Assembly held in the summer of each year. The CCA President serves as the Chair of the Higher Education Service Council and attends the Service Center meetings held at CTA State Council.
