The Maryland Association of Community Colleges (MACC) is the voice and advocate for Maryland’s 16 community colleges and a resource for our member institutions.
Founded in 1992, the Association represents all 16 of Maryland's 2-year public higher education institutions. MACC is a voluntary, non-profit organization governed by a 32 member Board of Directors composed of the president and one designated trustee from each member college. MACC's annual budget is established by the Board of Directors and funded from a yearly dues assessment of the member colleges. MACC is a working partnership between the Annapolis-based professional staff and the leadership of the community colleges.
The MACC Databook has a wealth of information. It provides data that is helpful when there is discussion in many different topics related to PGCC and the other Community Colleges in Maryland.
The Maryland Higher Education Commission (MHEC) is the State of Maryland's higher education coordinating board responsible for establishing statewide policies for Maryland public and private colleges and universities and for-profit career schools. MHEC also administers state financial aid programs that affect students on a statewide basis.
The MHEC Faculty Advisory Council (FAC) represents the community college adjunct faculty interests statewide.
