Advocacy

With our legislative consultants, MCCA advocates on behalf of Missouri's 12 community colleges and oversees interactions with policymakers at the state and federal levels. Our team collects and distributes information to college faculty staff on legislative and policy issues; schedules appointments with elected officials and representatives from government agencies; and represents community colleges at meetings with federal and state officials.
