The Maricopa Community Colleges' Center for Civic Participation (CCP) seeks to enrich public life and public discourse on our Maricopa Community College campuses and in our communities. The Center also serves to promote effective practices that support Maricopa's mission relating to community education and civic responsibility.
Maricopa Community College District’s 10 colleges are members of The Democracy Commitment, a national initiative that encourages community colleges across the country to engage students in civic learning and democratic practices.
