Cape Cod Community College is one of fifteen community colleges in Massachusetts.

The mission of Massachusetts Community Colleges’ is to provide affordable education that serves the needs of their individual regions. This means providing the appropriate coursework, training and skills students require now, while looking ahead to be prepared for how community needs will evolve in the future.

The Cape, Islands and South Coast are served by two of the Commonwealth's fifteen community colleges - Cape Cod Community College in West Barnstable, and Bristol Community College with several campuses on the south coast. Dr. John Sbraga, President of Bristol Community College, and Dr. John Cox, President of Cape Cod Community College, talk about what our community colleges offer, some innovative public-private partnerships they’ve created and what changes they see in the coming years.
