The League is an international consortium dedicated to catalyzing the community college movement. CEOs
from the most influential, resourceful, and dynamic community colleges and districts in the world comprise
the League’s board of directors and provide strategic direction for its ongoing activities. These community
colleges and their leaders are joined by more than 800 institutions that hold membership in the League
The League, with this core of powerful and innovative community colleges and more than 160 corporate
partners, serves nationally and internationally as a catalyst, project incubator, and experimental laboratory
for community colleges around the world. We host conferences and institutes, develop Web resources, conduct
research, produce publications, provide services, and lead projects and initiatives with our member colleges,
corporate partners, and other agencies in a continuing effort to make a positive difference for students and
communities. These current programs, along with the League’s 46-year history of service to community
colleges, explain why Theodore Marchese, the veteran editor of
magazine, observed, “The League is
the single most vital organization in higher education today.”
